Expanded 2nd edition includes DAX, Power Query, Power BI Desktop, PowerBI.com. Covers Excel 2010 through Excel 2016.

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.

This is the e-Book edition. It includes three editions: PDF, ePub (for your iPad and other devices), and mobi (for your Kindle and other devices).

Note - due to the 77MB file size of the Mobi file, you can not e-mail this book to your Kindle. You will have to download via the USB transfer cable.

For eight years I am out of touch with Mircosoft Products except for Outlook. I use excel files provided by my team as only inputs to my Tableau, a great visualisation tool.I am living in SAP world all these days.

Power BI desktop attracted me back to Microsoft and I purchased power pivot and power BI just for one chapter on Power BI desktop.

I loved the way the subject is presented. Generous use of screen shots and the own style of authors taking you from simplicity to complexity makes this book excellent.

As the authors rightly pointed out Power BI desktop and Excel 2016 are different from their predcessors (like even the change of arrows in data modelling), I strongly recommend this book to anybody interested in Power BI and DAX.

Ilook forward for the book on Power BI desktop from these authors. I know power BI desktop is changing every month but still I will buy a book from these authors on this subject.

Great contents, nothing to say about that.

But on my Kindle Voyage the formatting is awful: no spacing between paragraphs, little images, not well integrated within the text, captions without the necessary spacing.

It seems written by a 15-year-old guy at his forst time on MS Word.

Very bad.
