an excellent book... best for those who already have an experience coding with SAS and wish to take that next step into becoming an advanced level SAS Programmer , cannot recommend it enough , and contains many tweaks which bring about a great increase in efficiency .
My practical SAS knowledge, and especially the knowledge of when to use a particular technique(to get max benefits from it) increased vastlyafter reading this book.
Not recommended for beginners though , you need to have at least a beginner's proficiency in SAS before you go through this book and learn from it.
