For my money, the absolute pinnacle of usable WordBasic books isn't
Microsoft's. The official stuff is pedantic, inaccurate, stiff, and bereft
of useful examples.

The peak experience in WordBasic is Woody Leonhard's "Hacker's Guide to Word
for Windows" from Addison Wesley. Awesome. Absolutely magnificent. It's like
having a wizard who doubles as class clown coaching right over your
shoulder. It's the only volume on WordBasic that's ever made that clumsy
language seem downright fun.
