Legal IT Insider has a helpful review entitled Read this book if you use Word – read this book if you want reasons not to use Word.
Why read this book rather than any other guide to Microsoft Word? Firstly, the authors were original members of the Microsoft Legal Advisory Council and have worked with Microsoft Office and Word going right back 20 years. Secondly, this book is specifically targeted at the Word-using requirements of the legal profession, taking into account lawyers’ constant need to create complex, lengthy documents that have unique (and sometimes court-sanctioned) formatting requirements – whereas similar books focus on the broader professional market. This is particularly evident in the Expert Tips (made by both PayneGroup writers and external commentators) that accompany the text although the Caution notes of warning are also essential reading.
