The only Reporting Services book you will need!


This book was great for giving me a better understanding of the workings of Reporting Services. I do have one other book on RS but it did little to get me beyond the hands-on labs I'd already been through. This book takes you to the next level (and beyond) to really tap into the flexibility of RS and how to get it to do what you want. It does have a developer slant to it, but I am not a developer and was able to stay with it. It reviews the anatomy of a report and takes you through sample reports, building from simple reports to more complex ones that resemble more of what you'd find in the real world. It even talks about creating external assemblies and invoking that code from RS. It also addresses report management, security, OLAP, and performance considerations.

This book also tells you what cannot be done with RS (in this version, anyway) potentially saving me alot of time and effort in trying! I highly recommend this book I don't think I'll need another RS book until the next version comes out. Hopefully, this author will produce an updated version at that time.

Another classic by Danny Goodman


Just like his Javascript Bible, this is a superb reference book for client side scripters.It is well organized and each area is clearly explained. Also the index at the back is comprehensive, so it is easy to find whatever you need help with quickly.This has been an invaluable productivity aid for me. It is hard to find good really good programming reference books, so this gem really stands out in my opinion. It is the best dynamic html book out there.

the best resource for a college-level introduction


Eric Raymond writes in "How to be a hacker" that learning Lisp will make you a better programmer for the rest of your days. And this book shows why. With Lisp (actually Scheme, but never mind that), your programs match your problem statement. Programming is no longer a mystical experience where "it suddenly works". With this book (and Scheme) you understand *why* it works. In this day and age, it is exactly the book that freshmen should see .. especially those who think they already know how to program. Thanks for writing this book. It will make my teaching easier.
