Excel has been one of the most powerful applications of recent times, but most users, unfortunately, only scratch its surface. Prof. Gottlieb’s book leverages his years of Excel workshops in the US, Europe and Asia, and he unleashes the tremendous potential and power of Excel. His to-the-point explanations and his innovative screenshots bring Excel alive to readers who may just have a working knowledge of the software. This amazing volume is an application-oriented book for Excel users who want answers fast, and who need to maximize the application’s awesome potential.

If I should thank Microsoft for inventing Excel, then I would like to thank Dr. Isaac Gottlieb more for teaching me how to use it to solve the real problems in my real work. Keep going Isaac!

As an avid user of Excel, several years ago I came across Isaac’s Excel-Tip-Of-The-Month newsletter. I quickly realized that Isaac exploits Excel to the “next usability level.” Like his monthly newsletters, Isaac has composed a book that is clear and concise similarly reflecting his teaching methods. This book helps intermediate users to rapidly acquire Excel-pro skills, while allowing advanced users to grasp concepts in one single pass-through. Furthermore, Isaac takes day-to-day challenges and provides elegant ease of use solutions.

Next Generation Excel presents an interesting perspective on the resourcefulness of Microsoft Excel like never before. This book is an excellent and a much-needed resource to MBA students, educators and Excel enthusiasts. In reviewing this book, the principal criteria included content, organization and Excel add-on files. The book is neatly organized into sections; starting with basic Excel tools and functions, commonly used statistical tools, what-if-analysis and then moving on to advanced data features, solver-add ins and various other ToolPaks, nicely complemented with the Excel snapshots to provide a user friendly experience. As a result, one can jump directly to the relevant sections and use the Excel files provided to get a more hands-on experience. The right mix of theory and practice, is the unique selling point (USP) of this book!
