"If you do get a Mac and iWork, you will also want the O’Reilly Pogue Press book iWork ’09 The Missing Manual by Josh Clark. This 800 page book will show all the features of iWork, and there are a lot of them."
-- Jerry Pournelle, Chaos Manor

"If you are a small business owner and want your staff to become experts in iWorks then this certainly is the manual for you. Using it will help you unlock the power of Number, and make stellar presentations with Keynote. "
-- Mikel King, JAFDIP

"All up, Mr Clark's Missing Manual on iWork is full of good advice in easily absorbed form. "
-- Garry Barker, Brisbane Times

"If you really want to learn how to use iWork ‘09, this book from O’Reilly with almost 900 pages is going to be your best friend...The author’s style is relaxed without being sloppy, and approaches topics in a very pedagogical and logical manner."
-- Magnus Nystedt, Shufflegazine

"In all, I found this book easy to read, follow, and comprehend, especially the Numbers section...This is yet another book that Pogue Press and O'Reilly publications can add to their list of needful things for users. It's the type of user guide I would put together (if I were an expert in each software package of the suite). This book comes highly recommended. "
-- Maureen Moyer, MLMUG Newsletter

"...get a copy of iWork’09 The Missing Manual if you are interested in digging into iWork and getting the most out of the software. Highly recommended. "

"In true Missing Manual fashion, Clark has put together a book that is both detailed and in-depth, yet easily readable...If you buy it and read it, then use it as a great reference tool, your own productivity will skyrocket. "

"Its format is the same as David Pogue’s original design for the Missing Manual series, and Josh Clark writes with a clarity and accessibility that closely approaches Pogue’s gold standard."
-- Victor Wolfram, DVMUG Member

"The book covers all aspects of iWork in depth and does an exceptional job putting it in terms that anyone can understand. The perfect balance between not over the head of those who are very new to the iWork App, yet not talking down to those who are experienced in using the Pages word processor, the Numbers spreadsheet, and the Keynote presentation program that Al Gore and Steve Jobs made famous."
