I especially liked the sections on form controls, macros and Chart Design principles. I tried using Mr. Alexander's design principles on one of my recent charts (a chart that I had previously been rather proud of, but after reading, realized was a clunky and cluttered abomination). Using his "less is more" principles I turned that baby into a thing of beauty and a joy forever. I'm starting to feel like the Frank Lloyd Wright of Excel charting.
I might add that the author has a quirky sense of humor that helps make the book an enjoyable read.
The first couple of chapters should not be missed: storyboarding your data to make the best use of it in a dashboard and understanding different levels of analysis are critical prior to jumping into the rest of the book.
This is a book I highly recommend.
The authors make excel dashboarding easy, effective, and powerful. Thank you to the authors for making such a clear and useful book. This excellent book has really improved my output at work.
There are many great examples that can simply make spreadsheets look and work better regardless of whether you are building a dashboard or not.
I especially enjoyed the functional nature of the book, in that you could immediately start applying what you have learnt, and I also enjoyed the fact that the author touched on the reasoning for doing something a certain why.
An excellent read, buy without hesitation!
