I recently received a note from a reader who was upset with my e-book, Dashboard Reporting With Excel.
In part, she wrote, “I thought maybe your product might be useful, so for $39.00 I thought I would give it a try. However, after reviewing it, it’s clear that your product doesn’t even cover Gauges. In fact, you don’t even endorse using them.” So she asked for a refund, which I issued immediately, of course.
My resistance to gauges should have come as no surprise to her; my article, Down With Gauges!, has received high Web traffic for years.
In part, I responded that there are at least two good alternatives to gauges.
