Our books compete with several books in the market.  In the segment for new users, the books compete with the books from the Dummies series, the For Idiots series.  In the market segment of mid to high level users, the books compete with the “techie-written” books by the large software manual publishers like SAMS, Simon & Schuster, etc.


Our books will take you from someone who knows just the basics of a software, if that, into being a total expert or a guru in that software.  The books are comprehensive, covering almost every topic in the software they teach.  They use tutorials and examples and are laden with rich graphics.  The books teach you the optimal way to learn a software. 


Once you have learned how to learn the software, then you do not even need to have the book next to you all the time.  You will be able to pick up new tricks of the software on your own.

Check out our table of contents.  They are detailed. You can look and pick some specific option which you need to learn or go to the index to find something out there. 


Look at the chapters which give you shortcut tips and tricks, and if you find that something which you want to know about is not explained in the book, just send us an e-mail.  The book may change depending on what you send us and what we think is the optimal response.  Companies like Microsoft claim that they are client driven and they write software based on what the clients need, but do you recall anyone from Microsoft ever calling you up?  I sure do not.  These books are as client driven as anything can be. 


Your feedback assists in designing the book, in making changes, enhancements, and more importantly, in the long run maybe even creating software utilities to improve the efficiency of existing software.  You know, Microsoft Word is powerful, but would not it be nice if there was a software utility which made it very simple to use.  Well, depending on your feedback, we could make Microsoft Word much, much better.  The same goes for other software.  We would like your feedback on any aspect of the book, on the sample files, on the graphics, on the teaching style, on the philosophy of our instruction style, and anything else you might feel might be relevant.
