Guest Instructors for PowerPivotPro School – The “Slow Reveal”
Today’s Internet-powered world is a very cool place. I’ve made some amazing friends over the past few years – people all over the country and all over the world.
And that network of friends will benefit you, too, because they are graciously volunteering to teach guest modules in PowerPivotPro School I’m not going to announce them all at once, because suspense is fun and I’m still finalizing the roster, but today I’m announcing two:
Two Revealed, More to Come.
- Bill Jelen (aka the MrExcel himself)
- Zack Barresse (Excel MVP, firefighter captain, and Renaissance Man).
I look forward to seeing their tips, techniques, and experiences shared as part of the course.
User Groups Update!
No, I haven’t forgotten this. Progress is being made behind the scenes!
For instance, XLUserGroup.org came online yesterday and is rapidly rounding into shape thanks to the team here at PowerPivotPro HQ:

Book Update: Back in Stock, New Subtitle, Ref Card Included
Now More Appropriately Subtitled: “A Simple Guide to the Revolution in Excel.”
OK, yeah, we chickened out and didn’t fix the main title, which I completely agree is a terrible choice. So dry. But increased sales are a lower priority than making sure people don’t re-buy it thinking it’s a completely new book.
But there are some changes. Typos fixed, a few explanations adjusted. A warning about the Excel 2013 snafu. A couple of missed acknowledgments added.
And the ever-popular reference card now appears on the last few pages, replacing a couple of ads that were in the first edition.
Note that the laminated, “free standing” version of the ref card is still included for free when you buy the book from MrExcel.com.
