Help with ebook "Microsoft Word 2013" Step-by-Step

I just downloaded an e-book and pdf file of your "Microsoft Word 2013," Step-by-Step. I have no idea how to open either file. My attempt to save this to Google Drive failed, even though I retried many times. I really wanted to see sample documents created in Word 2013 that showed what I could do with Themes, Styles, and Color Themes. I wanted to find a list of ten macros that I might find useful, that might improve my productivity. I know how to create macros, I just do see what benefit they have. Even though I know how to use every Word 2013 command, there are many simple things I can't do in Word 2013, that I should be able to do. I would have to send you sample documents so you could see the problems I am having. I would like to know how I can purchase a set of basic fonts that are missing from Word 2013 like Futura, Minion, Univers, etc. I probably won't recall how to find this web site again. You might wish to contact me at Thank you.
