I just finished watching some great presentations from Marco & Alberto at SQLBits 8 in the UK - BISM Introduction & PowerPivot Advanced Data Modelling - so nice to hear a good review of this book as it's next on my list.

Greg,

thank you for the feedback!

I'm interested to go more in detail about the order of the chapters: what you would have anticipated? Except the SharePoint chapter, the other depends on chapter 6, unless you want just the solution to a specific problem, even if the goal of the book is not intended to be a set of recipes (I agree it would be interesting!). The intent is to explain DAX and how to leverage DAX and data modeling in PowerPivot in order to solve real world problems.

Anyway, I'd like to get more details to better understand how to improve v2... :)

Marco
