My review is based on my own learning style. Your mileage may vary, although the problems I describe seem likely to affect any reader to some extent.
I haven't looked at other Visio books yet. Amazon's reviews made this one appear to be the best, and it may well be... it just isn't that great.
Next, the good stuff. The book is extremely thorough, and I believe it's extremely accurate. I can tell that the author knows his subject inside out, and has spent a great deal of effort on this work.
Finally, the bad stuff.
I've been using Visio for over ten years, but I have never learned it systematically. I thought it was time I filled in the gaps in my knowledge.
Given my needs, I find the book very frustrating. It approaches Visio one feature at a time: the Ribbon, the template view, etc. For me, that's the wrong end of the telescope. I know everything I need to know about how the program's features work, as such. I want to learn how to DO things. For example, how can I draw a freeform connector and control its shape? If learning that involves learning something about the Ribbon or the template view, fine, but I'll never want to read a lesson about those features by themselves.
So the book isn't written for people like me, whose knowledge of Visio is deep but spotty.
I don't think it's written for beginners, either. No one is likely to retain much from a lesson that explains all the different things Visio's Ribbon can do before they've learned how to draw a circle.
Veteran users may find useful information here, but the book is written as a series of follow-along tutorials, and veterans will find the unfamiliar bits widely spaced and hard to locate. One wonders whether the author even thought about who he was writing for.
I'm going to skim through several more chapters, but at some point I'm probably going to set this book aside and look for one that discusses how to use Visio for meaningful work -- not just what Visio does.
