Reviews - What do customers think about Power One Note: Unleash the Power of One Note?
Too many assumptions Dec 16, 2004
I was disappointed with this book. Although it is structured reasonably well, the text often seems to assume prior knowledge - ie it talks about elements/actions as though the reader is already familiar with them.Then when you look up the reference in the index to see if there's clarification later on, the item cannot be found. As another reviewer says, there is much better information available both on the Internet and in other books. There's also a lot of irrelevant padding - like pages of quotes from the program developer about the......development of the program. As if it matters. I read it in a few hours and immediately put it up for sale. No takers so far.
Very good book: Has SP1 info for OneNote Dec 14, 2004
This is a very good book on OneNote!
If you have OneNote you should get this book. It is the only book about OneNote that I am aware of that has been written with the SP1 enhancements in mind. Whole chapters were added to cover new SP1 features.
The book has a chapter on the live interactive sharing of notes over a network. There is a chapter on controlling OneNote programmatically (information not available anywhere else).
OneNote is a unique product. If you just install it, it is hard to understand why it is better than Word. You need a book like this just to get a handle on what the software can help you.
If you have not tried OneNote, download a copy and play with it.
Don't bother getting this book Dec 12, 2004
"Life on OneNote" by Jacobs and Jelen is very nicely written with a clear and enthusiastic tone that renders the prose enjoyable. So why one star? Easy, there is absolutely nothing in the book that you can get in animated demonstrations for free off the Microsoft Office OneNote site: http://office.microsoft.com
