--John Walkenbach, Author of Excel 2013 Bible
"This book is essential reading for anyone involved in Excel reporting. It provides great insights about not only the most relevant and useful functions of Excel for reporting and management accounting, but also how to apply these in practical ways that will improve your thinking and make your reporting more efficient. Neale knows more about management accounting and Excel reporting than anyone I know, and this book allows you to benefit from his experience so you can avoid the pitfalls and dramatically improve your Excel reports."
--Jeff Robson, CEO & Principal Business Analyst, Access Analytic
"Neale has brilliantly applied his considerable experience and expertise in writing this book. With clear descriptions and straightforward analogies, he gets inside the mind of the reporting analyst. With useful guidance on Excel reporting best practices, the reader does not waste time on unnecessary features but instead is guided to invaluable time-saving techniques. By applying the simple yet effective methodology described in this comprehensive book, even an experienced management reporting analyst will improve the efficiency, integrity, and robustness of their reporting tools. Definitely a career-booster!"

"Neale is very well known for his practical Excel skills and knowledge. His new book, Advanced Excel Reporting for Management Accountants, is highly recommended and will be useful to both accounting students and professionals alike."
--William Beattie, CPA, Business & Finance Analyst
"This book is chock-full of well-explained good ideas. With hundreds of tips, even if you simply choose any three to consistently implement, your management reports (and all your spreadsheets in general) will be greatly improved. Apply more than three and your work will significantly reduce the likelihood of both qualitative and quantitative errors. Although the book uses the title 'Advanced, ' the name relates more to the outputs than the user techniques; the language is approachable, and the book builds through from improving Excel program usability to improving the Excel spreadsheets. A great go-to manual to keep and re-read time and again."
--Eve Blackall, Smart Accounting - the Science of Business Success
