There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
So as not to mislead you, the book expects you to have a basic understanding of DAX. If you are new to DAX, start off with an introductory book. Soon, you will want to know more and then this is the book for you.
Thank-you to the authors for great context and communication.

There is a lot of material related to workarounds for some pretty obscure needs. For some reason the authors are obsessed with correctly calculating percentages of subgroups in tables and there are pages and pages on that throughout the book.
Perhaps the most frustrating part is that there is one chapter on basically "how to solve real-world problems with DAX" - for example, making sure your year-on-year comparisons are accurate, or honing your year-to-date analysis - but this is very short; I wish it had been the whole book.
