Thanks again everyone, I’ve whittled it down to two existing titles and one new one. 

Please vote for one of them below – I’ve got to submit to the art department tonight Smile

  1. Final thought – Whatever you choose, the most important thing IMHO is to “answer the why” (as opposed to the “how”). You’ve already done it in the “Introduction” page of the first edition (or, even more succinctly – the title of Chapter 1). Conveying the idea of the grander goal is so much more intriguing… This is Excel’s new renaissance era, et al… in which the Excel pros themselves are the revolutionaries leading the charge. After all, DAX is but a means to this end. Now.. take a guess which was my vote! 😉

    1. A fantastic perspective, one of Wisdom!

      Reading the oh-so-mysterious tea leaves which tell me your favorite of the final three options, I can tell you that your favorite came in second in the voting.

      But then Bill’s point about Excel came in, and we hybridized at the last minute. We chose, ahem, a “Simple” flavor of your favorite. And I think it’s a winner. Or at least, a huge improvement 🙂

  2. I agree with Bill Jelen. Excel belongs in the title something like “Mastering Data Analysis with Excel PowerPivot.

  3. @KenKlien +1

    What would be some answers to the question of “How is PowerPivot different/better than Access?”
