Extract data from InfoPath forms in a SharePoint 2013 library

OK, so have a shiny new SharePoint 2013/O365 InfoPath forms library.  So far, I'm really happy with how things worked out, but haven't leaned on it much so we'll see.

Question is: now that we're collecting data with the forms, how can we get the data out into some aggregate form like Excel?

Trick is form has many fields, so don't want to promote them all in the site.  Any way to connect to each filled form and extract (read only) all data from each form?

Of all the searching I did, all roads do seem to lead to this book in your link.  Likely will buy a copy, but really looking for the specific solution.  Have you seen it?

No. My last involvement with such a problem was trying to extract repeating content in a form. We needed code for that.
