Greg Likes The Book
Yet another unsolicited bit of fan mail:
Just a quick note to tell you how impressed I have been, for a very long time, with your Excel books. I bought one several years ago (maybe Excel Power Programming With VBA?) and, at the time, it put me ahead of all of my colleagues in terms of practical, ready to use knowledge about MS Excel.
Skip forward at least a decade and I had a current need to update my ss skills and went to Barnes & Noble to get some up-to-date resource technical materials. As I was scanning the available materials, my wife said "how can you ever manage to figure out which Excel book to pick?" At that moment in my scanning, I saw just "Walkenbach" and I pulled it out and replied "Right here, this guy is an Excel genius. I recall reading one of his earlier Excel books and it was just incredible." I think she thought I was kidding.
Well, I took Excel 2007 Bible home over the weekend and cracked it open this morning to get up to speed on charts. I wrapped up the 'Getting Started Making Charts' intro on charts and am just part way into 'Learning Advanced Charting' and I am very impressed! Your exceptionally clear writing style, focus on how to do the task at hand, easy transition from introductory to advanced materials are all just top-of-the-line.
So, I thank you, man, for putting out such a truly great product and I wish you the very best. I can't say enough good stuff!
Wishing you the best,
Greg S., NY
I'm glad you like it, Greg.
