    Yes, only a few things have changed with the API and interface... some buttons will have moved around, but the wizards and functionality are nearly identical.

    MapPoint for Dummies

    There were actually a couple print runs, one title MapPoint 2002 for Dummies and then MapPoint for Dummies.

    I don't actually know what the reason was for the different print runs or the counts of each, but I did hear Microsoft bought the first 10,000 copies of MapPoint for Dummies to entice Wiley (or whatever the company was then) to initially publish it! This was in the days Microsoft put big bucks behind MapPoint to promote the product. Now they are doing something on another scale with Virtual Earth.
