Customer Reviews

By A G Hews, reader review from Amazon.co.uk

“Easy to read, written in plain english, well laid out, holds your hand through each stage, full of useful tips, handy to keep nearby as a quick reminder, I will buy more from this series.”

By G Hallett, reader review from Amazon.co.uk

“All too often I have found such manuals poorly indexed and difficult to follow, not this one. So far everything I have needed to know has been clearly defined, easily understood and readily put into practice. It is as if as you look at the PowerPoint page the scales fall from your eyes and each icon says ‘of course that’s what it does’.”
