Excellent - for people who never used Excel before!, Apr 14, 2023
Perhaps I expected too much, but this book is so voluminous that one assumes it should contain all the answers to Excel related questions (as many people believe the books of `Bible' type should :-). On my second try, I was greatly disappointed to find that the only reference on important programming function `ADDRESS' is a one-line definition! So, if you never used Excel before, I guess this book would be a good place to start. Otherwise, continue to search for the true Holly Book elsewhere.

Not up to date, Mar 19, 2023
John is a great writer. I have a number of his books in my library.
Unfortunately, he's not keeping up with the product. The primary changes in Excel 2003 (xml, SharePoint integration, InfoPath, etc) are essentially missing from his Book.
Its like he took the Excel 2000 version of his Bible pretty much just changed the cover.
I returned my copy.

WOW!, Feb 23, 2023
And I thought that I knew Microsoft Excel. I was sure put in my place. This book will do it for you. I'm going back and taking notes again just so I don't forget since this has so many things that I wasn't aware of.
If you need to 'really' learn Excel, this is your book. He makes it easy to follow, easy to learn, and even fun.
I wasn't even half way done and I knew that this book was a "BARGAIN!"

Great Book, Nov 17, 2022
I am a medium Excel user. This book has helped me take it to the next level. The little 'tips' alone in each chapter helped me do day to day activities much quicker than before.

Excellent as a Reference..., Apr 17, 2023
The book is really a Bible... A lot of useful information for people that are beginning to use this spreadsheet. I also believe that this book could be a great asset for those who have a good understanding of the tool. It's easier to find a solution in the book's index than looking for it on the help feature of the software. I really have to recommend this book!
