From the Inside Flap

"If you're looking to take advantage of the performance benefit from calling C/C++ code from Excel then this book should be the first and last one that you buy. For the second edition Steve has catalogued the changes needed to work with Excel 2007 and given new examples covering the SABR stochastic volatility model and CMS derivative pricing."
—Dr. Mike Staunton, London Business School, Wilmott columnist

"This book is for anyone who wants to do any application development in Excel. Even for an old hand at Excel development such as myself, a brief skim through reveals valuable nuggets of information. Delving deeper into the text, richer veins are easily found. This book is destined to become an essential reference on Excel development."
—Dr. Les Clew low, Principal, Lucama Group Ltd

"Programming Excel add-ins using the C API can be complex and difficult. Steve has done a masterful job of demystifying the process. After reading this book you’ll be creating XLLs for all purposes with complete confidence. Highly recommended."
—Rob Bovey, MCSE, MCSD, Excel MVP, President, Application Professionals
