The Cognitive Style of PowerPoint: Pitching Out Corrupts Within, Second Edition
Edward R. Tufte
An enjoyable indictment
Tufte makes a cogent case against PowerPoint in this sleek, catalog-sized volume, blaming it for, among other things, the Columbia disaster. He recommends paper handouts as an alternative for anyone presenting serious science, numbers-intensive business, or anything else requiring thought. Does he go a bit overboard? Certainly. But that's what makes the book fun rather than pedantic. Everyone in ...

Office 2008 for Macintosh: The Missing Manual
Pogue Press, 2008
Nice book, faster than an internet search
As a reasonably experienced Office 2007 user I was constantly fighting to find solutions to "quirks" with the Office 2008 suite for Mac (i.e., what's the comparable Office 2008 key stroke for F-4 in Excel? Surprise, it's CMD-T). Don't let them fool you, the PC version of Office is much more versatile than the Mac version; but the Mac has more than enough virtues to overcome these deficiencies. ...

Office 2010 For Dummies (For Dummies (Computer/Tech))
Great tool to take full advantage of the new Office
Office 2010 does not have as many changes compared to the previous version as Office 2007 did. That being said; most of the changes are "under the hood" improvements to make everything much more efficient. This book does a very good job of summarizing these changes, where to find every imaginable tool and how to customize the ribbon. If you're a very seasoned Office user (one who honestly ...

The Antidote for Death By PowerPoint
A great book that reminds every would-be presenter to keep it simple (stupid). Lots of real-world examples. If you have to give a presentation this is required reading. Having said that, it does not address handouts in detail (nor should it). Pages 66-67 are dedicated to basic dos and don'ts on handouts, but you'll need to look elsewhere for advice on that aspect.

Clear and to the Point: 8 Psychological Principles for Compelling PowerPoint Presentations
Oxford University Press, USA, 2007
The most helpful PowerPoint book that I've seen
I have recently been preparing to give presentations during academic job interviews and although I've given countless ppt presentations, I still felt ineffective in my use of the medium. I have tried reading other books (Why Most PowerPoint Presentations Suck, for example), but have found little use in them. This book, though based on visual processing research, is presented clearly and ...
Teach Yourself VISUALLY Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2007 (Teach Yourself VISUALLY (Tech))
Lisa A. Bucki
It is So Easy!
The "Teach Yourself Visually" books claim to be the "Fast and Easy" Way to Learn. I totally agree, I found that when I used one of their books and really learned the software I was spoiled. I got used to the way the books are set up; I love the full color pages and easy instructions with individual tasks. Sometimes I just need to remember how to do one little thing, and with other books I would ...

These quick reference guides are fantastic-a must for easy reference when upgrading from Office 2003 to 2007. I got one set for my office, since I'm the tech person and must answer tons of questions when we upgrade. Got the main IT office interested in purchasing them in bulk as well, since no money for training for this upgrade for the base.
