    You'll be hard pressed to find a better Excel 2007 manual

    Outstanding visual presentations and organization make the book a pleasure to study. The book lives up to its series title: Master Visually with thousands of screen snap-shots the result of which is efficient learning. You will not waste time having to find the menus, buttons and dialog boxes that the author is referring to. The author has done the time consuming work.

    Also, the book is well organized into practical tasks. You don't have to read the book from cover to cover - just look up the specific task you are interested in.

    There are many Excel books on the market but in my opinion you will be hard pressed to find an Excel manual that makes improving your skills easier or more efficient.

    As an aside, I sent the author an e-mail with a specific question. I not only got a response within a few hours but the response was most helpful.
