This is an extremely brief overview of how to use OpenOffice.org Writer (also Libre- and StarOffice) to perform the Nuclear Method of book formatting exhaustively covered in the Smashwords Styleguide.

The text is brief and the author desperately needs to send it to a proofreader. That said, the information is solid and deadly accurate.

1. If you are an Open/Libre/StarOffice Writer ninja, you don't need this guide. It won't hurt you to spend the $0.99 and three minutes reading this, but you will likely be disappointed.
2. If you frequently use paragraph formatting features of Writer, you probably don't need this guide. The $0.99 is not a large investment and you may pick up something you don't already know or use all the time. However, it's a pretty good walkthrough.
3. If you mostly use Writer as a basic text editor with some bold and italics, this is a great introductory guide, but I cannot strongly enough recommend a thorough exploration of a more exhaustive OO.o manual. You should spend the $0.99 to help you get published quickly. Then buy and read a more thorough manual.

I found the book informative because I use OpenOffice extensively and am currently working on my second book using this processor.
This edition of Smashwords "Helps" has shown me several easier ways to use the somewhat hidden benefits of the processor. Some of these helps rectified my "work around" methods I grunted and groaned through late at night with my previous writings.
I, have one of my books - The Young Shall Inherit - currently on Smashwords and looking toward placing my second on very shortly.
So, thanks for the help. I, for one, appreciate the assistance.
