From the Back Cover

Praise for Using Excel for Business Analysis
Revised Edition
"Danielle brilliantly manages the balance between business relevance and the necessary technical explanations expected from a book such as this. Her ability to walk in the shoes of the reader and deliver concise practical wisdom is unsurpassed. I highly recommend this book to anyone working with numbers, be it a Chief Financial Officer talking to the board or a Business Analyst starting their career. With Danielle's advice you can transform your career from successful to exceptional."
—Garth Holloway, Managing Director, SixFootFour Consulting
"Danielle's expertise and experience shines through in a very readable book, introducing the key concepts and considerations inherent in financial modelling. From novice to advanced modeller alike, readers are presented with many useful tips, tools, techniques, and pragmatic examples to refer to time and time again. Readily digestible, this book plugs a gaping academic hole that illustrates the risks and rewards of taking a spreadsheet by the throat and converting it into a robust, transparent, and flexible decision-making device. It will help you to 'Excel'."
—Liam Bastick, Managing Director, SumProduct, and Excel MVP
"Excel is a powerful and underestimated tool in many business environments. Whilst there are a number of books on the market that help explain the countless functions and features of the product, there are few if any that clearly articulate and teach the analyst how to unlock the power of Excel as an analysis and modelling tool for critical business decisions. Filled with easy to follow examples and based on many years of practical experience and education, Danielle Stein Fairhurst's book Using Excel for Business Analysis: A Guide to Financial Modelling Fundamentals has finally bridged that gap with a step-by-step approach to building models that address important real-world business questions."
—Michael Morgan, General Manager, Business & Productivity Solutions, Empired Limited
