Illustrations of computer screens are impossible to read. The book is too large for reasonable access on the Nook. Nook drops back to opening screen while trying to read the book. Reference materials such as this are poor candidates for the Nook. I ordered it for the Nook by mistake and B&N wouldn't let me cancel the order. I had to buy a second copy to get the hard-copy book. I can't comment on the contents of the book until I get the hard-copy.

I thought this book was fantastic! It shows you exactly how to do about a 100 different business/stock market/probability models you can do in Excel. This book is for beginners. However, if you have NO working knowledge of excel I recommend learning up at least a little bit before buying this book. Go on youtube for some of the basics then you can have a crack at this!
