    Well Written!!!!

    I went to the book store looking for another title concerning Excel reporting. The book was not available so I started looking at other books on the subject. This book caught my eye because of the title and subject matter. I was not disappointed. I have found this book to be on point. I really appreciated the examples since I am a strong visual learner and the SQL queries. I had problems with the video examples that was okay because I did not need them. This book is a winner.

    Excellent Book - Worth the Wait!

    Excellent book! This is by far the best book I've read on PivotTable reporting. It's jam-packed with SQL query examples and it is the first book I've seen that shows how client OLAP and web-enabled reporting really work. The author really shows his expertise on how reports really work in the enterprise.
