Covering a variety of Excel simulations, from gambling to genetics, this introduction is for people interested in modeling future events, without the cost of an expensive textbook. The simulations covered offer a fun alternative to the usual Excel topics and include situations such as roulette, password cracking, sex determination, population growth, and traffic patterns, among many others.

About the Author

I am a scientist, writer, speaker, and consultant, working at the interface of science, philosophy, and religion. By training, I am human geneticist who also earned a doctorate in the philosophy of science. I studied and worked at universities in Europe and the United States. In 1994, I moved permanently with my wife, Trudy, to the USA, and live now in the southern part of the State of New Hampshire, USA. Because I learned how to use computers for research in populational genetics, I also train scientists to use computers and help them programming. For this purpose, I also developed a "Visual Learning Series" of CDs and DVDs, published by MrExcel.com.
