    This book is very easy to read, and well structured so even if you already use a lot of functions in Excel it is easy to find things you're unsure of or want to learn more about. I use Excel daily with my job and have an intermediate knowledge of macros but I have still found this book useful for gaining some more shortcuts and ideas.
