This book is not a list of worksheet functions and a description of their arguments. It contains fully formed formulas that solve real world problems. For example, there’s a whole chapter on financial formulas like creating an amortization schedule and calculating depreciation. I know financial stuff isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, that’s why we included 101 formulas. Mike wanted to write a book called One Ready-to-Use Excel Formula, but I said “Wait, what if we increased that number so there’s something for everyone?” I’m always looking out for you, dear reader.
You definitely want to buy one for yourself. But you should also buy one for that person in the office that needs it. You know that person who adds up the numbers in a spreadsheet on a calculator and then types the sum into Excel? Leave a copy of this book anonymously on his desk. Your boss might even reimburse you for it.
