I see the training, blogs, and exercises, but I don't see books. I have the practitioners guide, but I'm wondering if there are any other books available.

Is there something in particular you are looking for?

Hi JulieH and Anil,


There is a  handbook (A PRACTITIONER’S GUIDE TO ALTERYX) available which has been published by USEReady. There are two books - one for version 10 and another for version 11 which is the latest version.

I have found it to be very helpful in the learning process and it is available in multiple formats (hardbound,e-book,Kindle).

It has some interesting exercises at the end of each chapter.


It is available for sale on Amazon.
