    CONGRATS on the book!

    Thanks for this podcast. It's great to hear about your disaster and recovery. It's a reminder that we're all human. None of this skill came easily.

    Hey chandoo
    this really a good lesson learned
    but as I have already stated in one of my previous email that it would be more helpful for us if you could release videos of your classes for us
    thanks

  3. Nafi says:

    The article gave me motivation, especially you describing the terrible disaster that you faced but how to get back from the setbacks. Thanks for that, but with video this will be more fun.

  4. Amankwah says:

    You always motivate me with respect of the tools in excel. How we can really exploit it to the fullest. Thanks very much

  5. Juan says:

    Thank you very much, Chandoo, for your excellent lessons, I am anxious to learn so valuable tips and tricks from you, keep up the great job!
    I truly appreciate the transcripts of the podcasts, because as a speaker of English as a second language, it allows me to fully understand the material. It'd be great if you can add transcripts to your online courses too, I am sure people will welcome this feature.

    Dashboards for Excel has arrived in Laguna Beach, CA! Thanks!

    Now I need to make time to "learn and inwardly digest" its contents as one of my high school teachers would admonish us!
