A helpful book with a lot of good tips. My only quibble, and it's a relatively minor one, is that I wish it had been a bit better organized to match the actual process of formatting. I ended up putting stickies on a lot of pages so I could get back to them later when working on the relevant process. Oh, I forgot--it also needs to be updated for the current versions of Word (Mac/Win), though it's still quite usable as is. I'll definitely hang on to it for the future.

There is some very helpful information on how to format your book using Word 2007. If you don't have Word 2007, it's going to take you some time to play around with the settings to follow Shepard's instructions exactly.

The title says it all. The author believes an older version of MS Word is better for book layout than the modern versions, so you will have to do a little translating.

Still loaded with valuable information.

A very clear and concise book about how to format Word manuscripts into a book. Aaron Shepard knows the field and shares his knowledge with humor and grace, and I love his books.
