Good but.. Review by acme20
Price Value Quality
I felt the book was a wealth of practical and informative information. My only criticism is that the CD included is Windows only. Which leaves anyone and everyone with a Mac or other OS out of luck. Since the CD says it contains forms, recipes and resources; why not have it readable on all platforms? (Posted on 1/2/10)
