From the book Forward by Dr. Moshe Porat, Dean of the Fox Business School Temple University

I am pleased to write the foreword to this very practical and important book on Excel by Professor Isaac Gottlieb. As Dean of the Fox School of Business at Temple University in Philadelphia, I have personally known Dr. Gottlieb for several years and can attest to his deep knowledge in this field. Excel is one of the most robust business application tools of our time, and Professor Gottlieb is one of the foremost experts in Excel. Professor Gottlieb teaches Statistics and Excel to graduate and undergraduate students at Temple University. He is very passionate about teaching and receives rave reviews in his classes. This book utilizes not only his many years of using Excel on both PC and Apple, but also his teaching of courses and workshops in many universities and corporations across the world. The many questions that have been asked of him, including those sparked by his “tips of the month,” are distilled in this book.

This book distinguishes itself in a number of ways. Even though the book utilizes the latest version of Excel (2010), it explains how it differs from – and how to work out the same tasks with – previous Excel versions (2007 and 2003). It even has a special appendix in every chapter for Excel for Mac 2011, which has become increasingly popular. Every topic and chapter includes real-world cases using the most efficient Excel modeling to solve them. Chapters are followed by review questions and solutions.

 This book covers a number of concentrations most analysts and business students use today: finance, accounting, statistics, data mining, operations management, and analytic techniques for decision-making. The capstone appendix is a detailed supply chain management case study that combines all the techniques covered throughout the book.

The majority of Excel users take advantage of only a very small portion of the software. This book, with 35 chapters covering a variety of topical areas, unleashes the incredible capacity and potential of Excel. Professor Gottlieb’s thorough explanations of these topics and hundreds of actual screenshots enhance readers’ ability to understand and see how routines are performed and displayed. This book will be useful to all who utilize Excel in their daily lives, be they casual users, students or professionals.
