Format: Paperback
Pivot Tables are one of the most powerful yet least used features of Excel. The author's MrExcel web site conducted a survey that showed that less than 42% of Excell users make use of pivot tables. I believe his estimate is high. Only experts are likely to visit his web site. I don't believe that 42% of the people who use Excel have even heard of pivot tables.

I further think that part of the problem is the name Pivot Table. This is primarily a Microsoft term (Microsoft has trademarked the word PivotTable - with no space), but the original functionality came from Lotus Improv.

It's foolish for me to try to explain pivot tables here when the book exists. Let me just say that if your task involves taking a lot of data that would make a lot more sense to you or your boss if it were summarized in various ways, Pivot Tables are for you, and the authors of this book are recognized experts in the field.

Note that the book has been brought up to date to cover Excel 2007. There are a number of changes in 2007 that are distinct improvements over previous versions but that require you to do things that are a bit different while the overall functionality remains basically the same.

Format: Paperback
There are no references in the book to the applicaplbe practice files (downloadable leaveing the user to open the various files and determine which is applicable to a given exercises. I'm only in Ch 3 and have found references within the text to tables within the text that do not exist. Example, Ch 3, pg 51 references Cell B7 in figure 3.7.
Figure 3.7 is a dialog box displaying how to change a field name. The book itself seems to have excellent content; however, I've found nomenclature to be inconsistent, practice files not identified, and references not accurate. Very informative book be very frustrating to use.

This book helped tremendously during my early stages using PT, without a doubt I would recommend this book to someone who just started to incorporate Pivot Table into their work. One recommendation, It would be nice if a CD with all the work examples came with the book, unfortunately you have to download the example files from a website.

I have no previous experience of either Pivot Table or Office 2007. However, by following the instructions of this book and keep practicing, I don't feel pivot table is so difficult as I did before. Highly recommend this book.

I have thoroughly enjoyed what I have learnt so far. Good and easy to understand. However, very difficult to follow which of the downloadable exercise files is being used. Need to state the file name in the book. I am wasting time trying to find the correct file in order to follow the instructions.

Format: Paperback
I liked this book. Even though I had a basic idea of what pivot tables are and how to use them, and actually HAVE used them, this book was exactly right to make things much more clear to me.

Specific things I liked:
- It's concise. Only 274 pages in all, but all of them useful. No wading through long-winded introductory material. This gets right to the point.
- It gives specific information about how you should structure your data so it's amenable to pivot table processing. I had been struggling to make a pivot table work with data that I had already collected into a typical 2-dimensional table but was having trouble making it come out as I wanted, and now I know why. That alone was worth the price of the book.

This book would have been perfect if it had been more specific to Excel 2007 and had not tried to be applicable to users of many previous versions of Excel. The 2007 version is enough different that I was left feeling a bit hungry for the specific 2007 view at times.

I use pivot tables all of the time so I bought this book to see if there are things I can learn. I did and have learned a lot and it is a great reference. The first two chapters cover the basics but it advances very quickly after that. Writing is very bullet-ed and you can easily look up what you are looking for. A must have for all beginner, intermediate, and even advanced Pivot Table users!

Note of caution is that if you do not have Excel 2007 this book is not that useful as a lot of the features for Pivot Tables have changed from the 2003 to the 2007 version.

As an executive or manager, if you are not using Excel Pivot tables, you are missing out on one of the most powerful tools available. Pivot table knowledge and experience is a critical skill that must be mastered to effectively manage any project, department, division, group or company.

This book is a very effective way to learn and master pivot tables - even if you think pivot tables are too "complicated". It is simple to use, just start at the beginning and in a few hours or a couple of days you will wonder how you ever did without pivot tables.

Pivot tables are a must for anyone in management or those who boast of experience with Excel. All prospective job seekers should be tested in their ability to use pivot tables.

I recommend this book for anyone who needs to get up to speed fast on Pivot Tables.
