    Anyone read Excel: The Missing Manuals?

    A book published by O'Reilly Press, written by Matthew MacDonald. Just had a copy sent to me and curious if anybody had read this or any other Missing Manual books out there.

    I meant to answer haven't read them, but answered no, might be a thought to be able to change your opinion on a vote. Just a thought, if there is a way please let me know how

    I believe mods/admins can change the votes, but that's all.

    After looking at several different Excel titles and not reading any reviews online prior to purchasing, I decided on this one. I am thoroughly pleased with this book. It is written very well, concepts and examples are easy to grasp and I was a complete beginner when I purchased this book. I go to it still for new info and for refresher too.

    Haven't read them, Zack. I tend to stick to J-Walk and Bullen titles myself.

    LOL! Well I know pretty sure they are writing a book on Excel 2007, probably due out next year. I picked up their 2002/2003 Excel book and it's not too bad. Just curious as to what everyone thought of them. I personally didn't know about the series.

    Pay attention! I might have meant they wrote a book using excel, not necessarily about excel...

    LOL...but either way my comment was the same. Who Knew!

    If they write minutes in Excel, why not!

    I came across the book in a store here yesterday, but put it down when the asking price was $70 Australian.

    I've read it and I liked it a lot. I know that the opinions on this book differ and some people say it's nothing special, but it appeared to be very useful to me. Recommended!
