Read in July, 2011

A generally mediocre and long-winded book, made longer by the waste of white space. I can't believe this book was over 300 pages. I especially disliked how he keeps quoting Colin Ware in large blocks and using all of Ware's ideas. If I wanted to hear Ware's ideas I would go and read his book. Most of the ideas are half-baked and don't go far enough to satisfy the reader. There are also 2 random appendices: "How to express time as a percentage in Excel" and "How to Adjust for Inflation in Excel". Since this is not an Excel book, these appendices are strange (and random)!
