    In the introduction section of the book, page xviii, there is a remark that says: "All the Excel workbooks that are referenced in the text (that is, all the workbooks that are used to illustrate the concepts). Note you need to have Excel 2013 to open the workbooks."

    So do I understand it correctly that one must have Excel 2013 installed to make use of this book?
