Cutting Edge PowerPoint for Dummies
Let me begin this ezine issue by announcing the release of my new book. Published by Wiley, this is part of the Dummies series. The book has so much information that I could not fit in everything! Fortunately, that was a very nice excuse to cram in a CD that has free content valued at $400! And there's a color insert and a companion site - take a look at the companion site...

Revealing PowerPoint 12
It's so easy to be optimistic about the next version of PowerPoint - Microsoft has added tons of new features to the program in what might be the most revolutionary release of this venerated presentation platform. For many users that might not be great news since this might require a certain amount of unlearning - and I know that feeling too well since I was so zapped when I saw PowerPoint without any menus! However, in just two days after working with the new interface, I'm a convert. If that sounded like putting in too much within the first paragraph of this article - it probably was, and you'll have to forgive my enthusiasm. Let me reveal all those new features one at a time.
Until next time - have a nice day. And keep the feedback coming..
