    Walkenbach for all levels of Excel users

    This is the third of John Walkenbach's books which I have purchased. Depending on your skill level, this book may or may not be perfect for you.

    If you're are anywhere from beginner to proficient in Excel, John will help you take your skills to the next level. As a semi-advanced user, I find this book to be an exceptional resource. It's not as strong in VBA as I would like, but that's why John wrote Excel 2010 Power Programming with VBA. I have the 2003 edition of that book, and find it just as useful.

    Excel is my favorite piece of software, and won't buy a book on the topic unless it was written by John Walkenbach.

    Price Out of Line

    Wanted to order but printed version from Amazon was $24.74 with free shipping. Why spend $11.00 more for Nook version. Unfortunately I have recently ordered several books from Amazon hardcover because they were up to 50% less thsn for the Nook!
