Spreadsheet Adventures - Coloring Fun with Conditional Formatting

About the Book

This book is a combo: both a textbook and a puzzles collection. Accordingly, the goal is twofold: to teach and to entertain, with an emphasis on the latter. You will learn a few logical functions (TRUE, FALSE, AND, OR, IF), and a few math functions (MOD, ABS, INT, MAX, MIN), and that will be enough to create an astonishing variety of intricate patterns. The ingredients may be simple; it is the skill of the cook that allows for making a delicious meal!

You may be pleased to learn that for every book sold, my son will donate half the purchase amount to charity, and it will be matched dollar-for-dollar by his employer. This means that 100% of what you pay for the book will go to charities that support humanitarian & environmental causes. You get a book, and a charity gets the exact amount you paid for the book, for a total of up to $20,000 per year. It’s a win-win!

About the Author

Alexander Zlatkovski
Alexander Zlatkovski

A pianist by trade, I was always looking for an artistic perspective in any endeavor. So, when captivated by Excel many years ago, I approached it with a “beauty first” and “fun first” mindset. The result was a myriad of beautiful patterns, a whole lot of brain teasers, simulations of everyday probabilistic conundrums, and more!

The “Spreadsheet Adventures” series was written out of an artist’s passion to share his work with an audience.
