Make the most of the software you already have. Did you know Excel can help you analyze and present your cases more effectively or help you better understand and manage complex business transactions? The Lawyer's Guide to Microsoft Excel 2007 will show you how.

John Tredennick is the author/editor of four best-selling books on law and technology issues, a 20-year trial lawyer, and a pioneer in the field of legal technology. Now he has produced a guide book uniquely designed to help lawyers improve their efficiency and increase their productivity with the most common spreadsheet software on the market.
