  • Cynthia E. Downes "Cindy Downes" - I'm an Office fan now with Office mac 2011I've used Apple products since 1982 when I purchased my first Apple IIe - that includes most software. When I decided to self-publish a book in 2004, I bought Quark. Since then, I've used Quark almost exclusively for word processing. My husband would often ask me why in the world I didn't use Word or some other simple word processing program. My answer: I didn't want to learn another program!

    Then, in 2007, I went back to college. I had to use Powerpoint, so I purchased Office for mac. I also used Word when I had to. But I still started up Quark when I was working on my own projects.

    This week, I got a chance to review Office mac 2011. This update has converted me entirely to Word, unless I need to typeset a document.

    Installation was a breeze - four minutes from start to finish. I first opened Powerpoint. I was glad to see that my purchased themes transferred in beautifully. No problems there. I tried a previous presentation and it worked perfectly.

    The new ribbon menu is awesome. This menu makes it so easy to find what you are looking for. The drop-down menus keep everything neat, but convenient. I can't say enough about the menu bar. 5 Stars!

    Next, I tried adding a movie - it is so easy that I had to find out what Word could do and found that it is just as easy to use as Powerpoint.

    I created a document from a template and then created one of my own with a cute ladybug border. I added images and wrapped text. I added a sound file. And changing margins was a breeze. Simply click one of six choices or creating my own custom margin.

    Maybe the previous version of Office does everything I described here; but, with 2011, it's so much easier to figure out. In only a few minutes, I learned to use more new features than all the features I had learned in the last few years. For me, that makes this update worth the money!
  • arthur kaell - as thankful as the othersLet me add one more praiseful review.Our child was diagnosed with Crohns at the age of 12. He quickly developed severe symptoms, and underwent a number of treatments and a number of hospitalizations. Surgery seemed imminent. Associated with this history were different dietary and feeding regimes (tpn and naso-gastric feeding, for example). During one hospitalization, which lasted about 3 months, I found time to read this book which a friend had given me some months earlier. It was an absolute revelation. It seemed to provide an exact explanation for patterns and timing of symptoms which were simply inexplicable in the context of any discussion with doctors.One example, and there were several others: The standard advice given by doctors with regard to nutrition and Crohns seems to focus almost exclusively on the physical process of food passing through the bowel, rather than causality. That is, if the bowel is constricted by inflammation, roughage should be avoided. On such a diet -- which in practice was heavy on processed food, starches and sugar -- several symptoms of our child's intestinal distress visibly increased, though drugs -- objectionable for other reasons -- controlled the inflammation. Our child (who is now 14) has had the discipline to stay on this diet for close to a year, though many of his favourite foods were eliminated. Since starting it he has never had a relapse of the disease, or the intestinal symptoms associated with it. This has been essentially without drugs. This very much contradicted the predictions of doctors who were urging the continued use of powerful drugs. I might add that his observance has not been absolutely religious. Very occasionally for social or simply for personal reasons he briefly departs from the diet. In his case this seemingly has no ill effect, contrary to the tone of the book and several of the reviews.I think that we owe a great measure of thanks to Elaine Gottschall.
  • Ashley - A must have !this is amazing ! two washes and my hair is completely transformed. i would usually have to blow dry it instead of letting it air dry so it would be combable (type 4c) but after washing with this i condition and apply shea butter leave in conditioner and i am saying goodbye to the blow dryer. it makes it soft and manageable. definitely a keeper and a good price !
