There are many great books out there that provide in-depth reference material and guidance on how to use functions and features mechanically within Microsoft Excel®. What most books fail to offer is context. Industrial Strength Business Modeling calls out specific features and functions that are most useful, and explains why you need to know about them. Reference books and help files are sort of like the dictionary -- necessary to look up when you need specific details about a single function or feature. While this book stays away from those details (and is not meant to substitute for reference material), it is written in two meaningful mediums:
"As someone who is frequently helping peers and colleagues with business modeling, I'm really happy to finally see a book which puts all the important topics together in one place. Josh has put a ton of great ideas into these pages. I'm very happy to finally have a book I can recommend to people who struggle with models."
-Scott Schroeder, Management Consultant
"Sometimes learning what is important is the biggest leap of all. The gem of this book is that it clearly lays out WHAT is essential to know BEFORE you build your model. While many books lay out methodology of building models, very few if any set you up for success like this one."
-Andrew Williams, Management Consultant
"Josh leverages his real-world experience to create a detailed book that both explains complex material in a clear way and also explains the 'why?' behind Excel best practices. Going way beyond the typical 'Excel how to' book, this is a must-read for any professional using Excel."
-David Mantilla, Consultant
