If you want to know more about PowerPoint 2007, check out my new books on PowerPoint 2007:

Cutting Edge PowerPoint 2007 For DummiesCutting Edge PowerPoint 2007 For Dummies is an updated version of my earlier PowerPoint book -- completely redone for PowerPoint 2007. In the typical Dummies style, it makes complicated concepts seem easy to comprehend and apply in your day to day work.

Most PowerPoint elements like text, graphics, charts, animations, transitions, fills, etc. have separate chapters -- and don't miss the part of tens in the last chapters.

Special Edition Using Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2007Special Edition: Using Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2007 is a detailed book that explores almost everything that can PowerPoint can do. The book can be used both as a reference and a cover-to-cover reading material -- depending upon how you want to use it. At over --- pages, it is thick and heavy enough!

I co-authored this book with Patrice-Anne Rutledge and Tom Muccilio.

Both books have amazing CDs -- and complement each other just in case you want to get them both!
