Tools of the Trade - How Not To Mess Up With Powerpoint and Word

Word, Powerpoint, HTML, Excel...

They're just tools. They can't make you think, write or express yourself better.

Since they are so ubiquitous, knowing how and when to use (and avoid them) is essential.

The August 2005 issue of Law Practice Today (American Bar Association) features an annotated list of Powerpoint resources called Powerful Pointers for Presenters including "Ten Tips to Improve Your Presentations with PowerPoint" and "Really Bad PowerPoint".

For Word, there is a new O'Reilly and Associates book Word Annoyances: How to Fix the Most Annoying Things About Microsoft Word which offers "to the point (and often opinionated) solutions to your most vexing editing, formatting, printing, faxing, and scanning problems," according to the marketing blurb. Chapter 3 can be read online in PDF format.
