This book is a very good introduction to the analytics that can be done from Excel, with some nice examples. Should be used as an introduction and overview.

Already having an extensive knowledge of Excel and its functionality, I found I needed to learn about creating analytical Dashboards. Having looked around, I have found Excel Dashboards & Reports to be the best guide I could have chosen. Not only is it comprehensive,it provides examples that can easily be related to and it also has supporting downloadable exercises.

I thought I knew a lot about Excel, but this has certainly given me a whole new dimension to my work.

I have used/studied Microsoft Excel since the early 90's. I now teach MS Ofice from basic to higher levels including the VBA program language.
Both authors of this publication have produced many excellent computer based books and this is no exception.
Very clear easy to follow examples using Excel 2007 and 2010. I am very much a geek when it comes to Microsoft having devoured this books contents on a week's holiday. First class book and I fully recommend it.

The book was just excellent :-), especially for people like me - an Excel user, just a bit above the average.
I am happy the book did not contain too complicated and very advanced IT-techniques. , ....., and it was didactic and easy to read.
An expert should look somewhere else.
I found lots of inspiring ideas/tricks, which I am already using to present my ideas without too much disturbing clutter.
Thanks John and thanks Michael.

I really enjoyed reading this book and managed to work through it quite quickly because it was a very easy read. The only thing I will say with this edition is that it has some flaws. The next edition has probably fixed a couple of the misinterpretations/things I couldn't learn within the book. I.e. the area using the "frequency" code, didnt work for me and I couldn't it to work no matter how hard I tried. I am a PMO manager and I found this very useful for building portfolio dashboards for my day to day project data.

Extremely helpful and well written material, from renowned and highly respected Excel experts. This book is a welcome addition to my collection over many years as an Excel user, but having only recently discovered the potential of dashboards as a business tool, I am delighted with the way in which the authors explain in straightforward terms how to develop and implement these useful analytical tools.

Overall a fantatic book which is packed with information that is largely new to me. It goes into alot depth on topics rather than just glosisng over them. It also provides some very very good sample data available online.

This is the type of book that can make a huge difference to day to day activities at work if you use spreadsheets alot at an advanced level. Even if you are not using advanced Excel techniques in reporting and Dashboards YET! You may well do in the furture, in which case this avery good book to have access to.
