From the Author:

At PowerPivotPro, I have really enjoyed working with the Power Pivot and Power BI community. This book, with Rob Collie, was an effort to reach out and help an even greater audience. Little did I know what I was signing up for :-)

It was hard juggling book writing with the training/consulting/travel. But I am glad we persevered. Big thanks to our IndieGoGo crowdfunding supporters, who not only made it possible to print this book in full-gorgeous color, but also inspired us to burn the night oil in writing those last chapters.

I sincerely believe that Power Pivot and Power BI can transform the lives of Excel users worldwide - after all I was one of them. But change is hard, even when it's for the better. We hope we can help you go from Excel to Power BI with this book and our services at PowerPivotPro.

Power On!
-Avi Singh

From the Back Cover:

Power Pivot for Excel and its close cousin Power BI Desktop are Microsoft's tightly-related pair of revolutionary analytical tools - tools that are fundamentally changing the way organizations work with data. We have repeatedly witnessed the "Power tools" transformative impact on the bottom line - far more robust and elegant than Excel alone, and much more agile and affordable than traditional BI tools. Their shared state of the art calculation engines (DAX and M) turn any PC into an analytical supercomputer, but the real secret is people - these tools are 100% learnable by today's users of Excel. The data revolution lays not in the hands of an elite few, but in YOUR hands, and we want to help you seize that opportunity.
