The field is not as new as Thaler would have you think. Besides, orthodox economic theory was not all that shabby when it came to predicting human behavior. By the time Thaler was entering his prime, Economics no longer had to apologize to anybody and was much more open to heresy, of course.
About the Author Acknowledgements Wayne Winston taught me most of what I know about Excel, which puts me forever in his debt.
Mike Morrow taught me a good chunk of the rest, but I'm pretty sure I've paid off all my debts to him by now. Brian Dickens provided characteristically thoughtful suggestions on the book's structure and design.
As is always the case, any errors or demonstrations of poor judgment that survived this feedback process are my sole responsibility. I'm also thankful to all the people who over the years asked me a huge variety of how-to questions about Excel. Their problems were inspiration for many of the topics and examples in this book.
Above all, I am grateful to Ganga Subramanian, whose reaction to "I'm going to quit my job and write a book about spreadsheets! Introduction There are many books about spreadsheets out there.
Most of these books will tell you things like "How to save a file" and "How to make a graph" and "How to compute the present value of a stream of cashflows" and "How to use conjoint analysis to figure out which features you should add to the next version of your company's widgets in order to impress senior management and get a promotion and receive a pay raise so you can purchase a bigger boat than your neighbor has.
Instead, it's about how to Think Spreadsheet.
What does that mean? Well, spreadsheets lend themselves well to solving specific types of problems in specific types of ways. They lend themselves poorly to solving other specific types of problems in other specific types of ways. Thinking Spreadsheet entails the following: Understanding how spreadsheets work, what they do well, and what they don't do well.
Using the spreadsheet's structure to intelligently organize your data. Solving problems using techniques that take advantage of the spreadsheet's strengths. Building spreadsheets that are easy to understand and difficult to break. To help you learn how to Think Spreadsheet, I've collected a variety of curious and often whimsical examples.
Some represent problems you are likely to encounter out in the wild, others problems you'll never encounter outside of this book.
Many of them we'll solve multiple times.
That's because in each case, the means are more interesting than the ends. You'll never I hope use a spreadsheet to compute all the prime numbers less than But you'll often I hope find useful the techniques we'll use to compute those prime numbers, and if you're clever you'll go away and apply them to all sorts of real-world problems.
As with most books of this sort, you'll really learn the most if you recreate the examples yourself and play around with them, and I strongly encourage you to do so. Along the way you'll learn the basic ideas behind spreadsheets.
You'll learn all sorts of useful shortcuts and time-saving tricks. You'll construct formulas until doing so becomes instinct. You'll amass a huge arsenal of functions, knowing when and when not to use each. By the end of the book you'll have mastered a wide variety of really advanced features.
As the title points out, this book is opinionated. It covers in detail topics that I consider important to Thinking Spreadsheet, and it goes out of its way to denigrate topics which I consider antithetical to Thinking Spreadsheet. Accordingly, this is certainly not a "complete guide" to any program.
There are plenty of features that I won't even mention, either because I don't care for them, because I don't understand them, because I'm afraid of them, or because I don't trust you to use them responsibly.'Tell Stray to have my ugly pills ready when we come off,' he said as the last number approached.
