5.0 out of 5 stars Thorough introduction to Power View, 28 Aug 2012
This is a thorough introduction to Power View, Microsoft's new data visualisation and exploration tool. The book is accompanied by a set of videos (on DVD in the paper book, downloadable if you buy the Kindle version). These were for me even more useful than the book. Power View is quite different to reporting tools and the best way to learn it is to see it in action. The videos are well structured and comprehensive.

In particular, there are a set of videos about installing PowerView. This is more complicated than you might expect. Power View requires SharePoint and SQL Server. SharePoint in turn requires a Windows 2008 server as a domain manager. For many, their IT department will have already set this up. However, Power View is a self-service BI tool so there may be a few people like me who need to set it up themselves. The videos take you through the installations step-by-step - I would not have been able to achieve this without such meticulous videos.
