Yesterday, I scrolled through my electronic library comprising the eBooks I bought on Kindle store and the audiobooks I bought on Audible; I was amazed.
Though I have all sorts of books in my e-library, in this post I will share with you my collection of Personal finance and self development books.
1. Securities Analysis: The classic 1940 edition by Benjamin Graham and David Dodd
I bought this book solely on Warren Buffett's recommendation. He never stops recommending the book, with statements such as "No one ever became poor by reading Ben Graham", "I have read hundreds of investment books, and Securities Analysis by Graham is the best", "Graham's daughter sent me Graham's copy with annotations and that is the best gift I have ever received", "I have read the 1940 edition at least 4 times" and "It is the roadmap for investing that I have been following for 57 years"
Though I am still reading this book, I have no doubt that it is the best investment book I have.
And about the author? Graham was regarded as the Dean of Wall Street, that before him there were no Securities Analysts (full-time) and after him, Securities Analysis became a profession.
And as evidence of the effect his book is having on me, I now have a folder on my tablet containing the Annual Reports of companies listed on the Nigerian Stock Exchange. I read them like I've got an exam on them to study for.

How does it work?
In this post I will guide you via lots of screenshots on how to make an Excel Pivot Table that is very dynamic (a dashboard indeed) and has data labels that are spread across several columns.
Firstly, download the sample Excel data I used via this link
Now you'll end up with an Excel sheet like this below
Select the cell A1. Go to Insert, Click on Pivot Table
Ordinarily, this should have been my MVP #2 post but better late than never.
So, here we go!
In this post I'll show you in a personalized way, the MS Excel interface and the most important parts of the important menu Ribbons.
Below is the labeled snapshot of my Excel interface (you might have to click on it to view full size)
At the beginning of this month I noticed something very disturbing.
I got a happy new month message from a dear friend and I tried replying; no way. I tried repeatedly, I kept getting message not sent. I googled the MTN SMSC code and as expected it was still +2348030000000, I tapped that into my modded android phone and got an error. I googled all the combination of mtn + android + sms + message + error + can't send; and no suggestion found worked. I switched the phone off and on severally, no result.
So for more than 8 days I couldn't send an SMS.
Then suddenly, on Wednesday, like a flash bulb, an idea lit up in my head. I removed my Airtel SIM from my Blackberry and put the SIM in the android phone, then I went to the settings to see the SMSC number. To my surprise it was 089132420000000f8 instead of +2348020000000 that is the actual SMSC number. I tried sending an SMS and it was successful.
So I did what anyone would do.
