About the Author

Bill Jelen is MrExcel, as well as an Excel MVP. He is an accomplished Excel author and the principal behind the leading Excel website, MrExcel.com. As an Excel consultant, he has written Excel VBA solutions for hundreds of clients around the English-speaking world. His website hosts over 10 million page views annually.


More About the Author

I spent twelve years 'in the trenches', working as a financial analyst for finance, accounting, marketing and operations departments of a $500 million company. Armed with a half-rate reporting tool and a spreadsheet, I was responsible for turning large amounts of data into analyses for the board room quickly and accurately. Working originally in Lotus 1-2-3 and then Microsoft Excel, I honed techniques to take massive amounts of data and produce meaningful reports in record time. These techniques are spelled out in Guerilla Data Analysis Using Microsoft Excel.

In 1998, I launched MrExcel.com, which is now one of the three most popular Excel websites with 21 million annual page views. Being MrExcel is now my full-time gig. My team has developed custom applications for hundreds of clients around the world. I enjoy entertaining a room full of accountants with my 'Power Excel' seminar.

When I am not Excelling, you can find me and the family under the stars enjoying a movie at one of the many drive-in theaters that still dot northeast Ohio or kayaking on the Mogadore Resevoir.

The book contained so much more than I had expected; it is the perfect hybrid of tutorial and reference book.

Format: Paperback
While I have had the pleasure of seeing a Bill "Mr. Excel" Jelen presentation, I've not had the pleasure - until now - of reading one of his books. I know - "pleasure" and "Excel" in the same sentence?! Jelen writes in a personable manner and throws in dashes of humor (don't overlook the captions for figures) which makes the book easy to read. There are also lots of screenshots throughout. Like other Que Publishing books, this one is also available in an online version so you can reference it anywhere you have access to a computer.

Jelen begins the book exploring in detail the changes to 2010. The first four chapters are very helpful in learning about new features and navigating around - even for someone who has been using 2007 for some time.

If you're like most people (including me) then you probably barely scratch the surface when it comes to Excel's capabilities. You know it's a powerful program, but you're not quite sure of what it can really do. Well as the "In-Depth" name - and Jelen's reputation - implies, seemingly no stone is left unturned here. At times the amount of detail is overwhelming, but of course it's easy enough to skip past what you may not be interested in - such as, for me, nine pages of keyboard shortcuts. Examples are given throughout the chapter so it is easy to follow along and explore hands-on. It would have been better if those examples were available for download as the reader is stuck typing all of the info in if they want to follow along.

At times though the book yo-yo's as it will leap from pretty basic Excel usage to quite advanced, which can seem like reading a foreign language. For example the latter half of chapter ten lost me when it jumped into discussion of the changes and additions to functions.

Bill Jelen's Microsoft Excel 2010 In Depth is a FANTASTIC book! Having moved from Excel 2003 to Excel 2010 very recently, this book had just the content that I was seeking to get up to speed quickly on the latest release. The book contained so much more than I had expected; it is the perfect hybrid of tutorial and reference book. Not only does the book provide simple and straight forward "How To" steps accompanied with relevant visual examples, it also provides real world reasons that warrant the use of the described program options and functions. In a very short time, I was able to attain valuable new tips and tricks that will make my every-day use of the software far more effective. The book has many references and comparisons to previous version's capabilities that I found extremely helpful.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Being an old fart, my first criteria for a reference book is "can I read it/ is it ugly?" Is the typography/design/color use/size of text/font readability "good enough"? If not, forget it.
Second: "does it give the impression I can use it to find things I don't understand?" Does it have an extensive index? Does the table of contents consist of "A B C" or does it show rather that the book was laid out according to some scheme? [This book has a 1 page "contents of the contents" followed by a 25 page table of contents.] Then: when opening it randomly do I find sensible/interesting comments? Such as "At first glance, MATCH seems like a function that would rarely be useful." Or "If you've ever created a small web page, you might have learned that browsers ignore consecutive spaces." "Caution: If you remember how they taught you to round in school, you know that the rule is [.5 rounds up]. [The author then presents the alternative "Bankers Rounding".] A final example- after noting that "It felt like [performing filtering with] Select Multiple Items wasn't quite done in Excel 2007" the author introduces "slicers" with the observation "although slicers take up much more space [...] [they] invite people to start running ad hoc analyses by clicking [them].
The only reason to sacrifice these guidelines (or to pay an outrageous price) would be to gain the wisdom of an acknowledged Master. A Master such as, for instance, the industry colossus "MrExcel". How fortunate for spreadsheet jockeys everywhere that this 1,000 page tome requires no such sacrifice- it passes all of my requirements with colors flying.
** I am confused by the July 22 review that says the book reads "like a help file". That is in no way correct. I'm not sure what there is to say about the TEXT function?

Format: Paperback
Microsoft Excel 2010 in Depth packs in techniques, shortcuts, and specifics on streamlining work and maximizing time. Tested, proven solutions to common Excel 2010 problems cover circumstances other references overlook, focusing on troubleshooting problems and work-arounds for common processes and issues. Other books cover program specifics: this is one of the few to focus on real-world obstacles and their solutions.

Format: Paperback
This is mostly a glorified printed version of Excel's online help that you can access using F1 key. It is written more in an elegant dictionary/reference book style which is helpful if you already know what you are looking for. However, if you want to learn what techniques to use to solve a certain problem, scenario or create applications, look elsewhere.
