More About the Author

I am a scientist, writer, speaker, and consultant, working at the interface of science, philosophy, and religion. By training, I am human geneticist who also earned a doctorate in the philosophy of science. I studied and worked at universities in Europe and the United States. In 1994, I moved permanently with my wife, Trudy, to the USA, and live now in the southern part of the State of New Hampshire, USA. Because I learned how to use computers for research in populational genetics, I also train scientists to use computers and help them programming. For this purpose, I also developed a "Visual Learning Series" of CDs and DVDs, published by MrExcel.com.

My most recent book (also in Kindle) is "It's All in the Genes! - Really?" It can be found here:

1.0 out of 5 stars This is Not IT, Must Wait for Another Author March 14, 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
One would think that a book which was written for engineers and scientists would have some focus on the problems in those domains. The book fails to address any such set. In addition the book appears as an attempt to describe the basic features of Excel and how to use them such as formatting, graphs, moving and sharing data and graphics, namely the very basic elements which any scientist or engineer would know ab initio.

The book is, for example, extremely weak on the "what if analysis" sections of Excel and says next to nothing about Scenario analysis and the like. This topic would be especially useful for the target audience since that is what they do as a matter of course.

At another level the text says nothing as to how to utilize Excel in areas such as discrete time dynamic equations, modeling multidimensional partial differential equations, and solving estimation problems using recursive means (Kalman Filters) and the like.

Finally the author's style and form of presentation is almost impossible to follow. Unlike the author I am an engineer, also teach the material as well, and have written my share of more than a dozen books. But I am always trying to put myself in the place of the reader and looking for clarity. This is not achieved in this text. The presentation and the layout are clumsy at best and confusing at worst.

There clearly is a need for a text on this topic, this is not the one however.

5.0 out of 5 stars Why you should buy this book October 14, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Why is this the book for you:
This book is a very handy and useful, easy to keep in your bag or suitcase to carry around, always at hand.

The author covers a lot very well organized, useful topics and explains them in a short and understandable manner, a no-nonsense approach, explaining what you need to know and skipping all the fuss, all in a highly structured approach of every topic covered.
Who should use it and why:
If you need to do statistic calculations in Excel (2007) and are in need of a “quick help” on a range of topics or you are at the point to fresh-up your knowledge about statistics, including learning some new tricks, this is the book for you.

Who should NOT use it:
The book is not (intended to be) a lecture in statistics. If you don’t know “WHY and HOW TO” use certain procedures or statistical formulas you probably will find them in this book, but you’d better get an upgrade in formal statistics first.
