"One of the beauties of the Missing Manuals is that there is always something new to discover and the research is quite thorough...I kept finding snippets of information, in the way of Tips or Notes, that would give just that bit extra."
-- Graham K. Rogers, Bangkok Post

"There are a lot of good books, but I keep returning to the Missing Manual series because they are inexpensive, easy to read and full of cool tricks and tips."
-- Bob Brooks, The South Bay Apple Mac User Group

"I have never seen a manual for any program, hardware or OS which is anywhere close to this series in its helpfulness to the reader. Anyone other than the well trained techs can find this book valuable."
-- Ray Bowler, Vice President, Des Moines Macintosh User's Group

"I have reviewed quite a number of Missing Manual books and I am always impressed with them. David Pogue is a Mac master and the depth of his knowledge shines through."
-- Roger Bernau, ACT Apple User Group Incorporated

"Matthew MacDonald's Excel: The Missing Manual provides exceptionally clear details, from how to understand spreadsheets and what separates a professional one from an amateur effort, to tips on writing formulas and use functions, and understanding how Excel can interact with other programs. Excel: The Missing Manual covers versions 2002 and 2003, and is simply packed with screen shot examples, tips to tracking down templates and creating effective charts, and advanced functions such as pivot tables and VBA language. Very highly recommended."
--James Cox, The Computer Shelf, Midwest Book Review, May 2005

"This book is so well written it will make you want to learn Excel, the Microsoft spreadsheet program...Learn how to post spreadsheets to the web, and even make them interactive for the viewer. You might be a novice at the beginning of this book but you'll be an expert by the end."
--Bob and Joy Schwabach, "On Computers," March 2005
