The subject matter really is spreadsheets themselves, not any particular spreadsheet program. All of the examples in the book were done in Excel 2007. My experience with spreadsheets is in Excel 2003 (and older) since that is what I use for business. I worked through most of the examples in the book using my personal MacBook which is running Open Office's Calc spreadsheet program. At no time did I feel like this book wasn't useful because I wasn't using Excel.
If you lack experience with spreadsheets, you will learn the core functionality that makes spreadsheets so powerful. If you're already a spreadsheet junkie, the main thing you can expect to get from this book is the ability to use spreadsheets to solve problems. In working through the examples you will learn some new formulas and also see those formulas applied in creative ways to accomplish challenging tasks. In short, it puts some new tools in your spreadsheet toolbox.
Oh, and I can't believe I am writing this about a book on spreadsheets, but it's actually pretty funny!
Alas, I had hoped for another like Hudspeth's "The Underground Guide to Excel....."
