"Lisa Fine's book, PROC REPORT by Example: Techniques for Building Professional Reports Using SAS, shows the vast and impressive capabilities of PROC REPORT not only for new SAS report writers, but also for experienced SAS report writers. Programmers daunted by the complexity of PROC REPORT will find well-organized, lucid explanations of its features. Experienced programmers will find themselves reaching for this book over and over again as they create reports.
"What makes this book an especially effective learning tool is that the accompanying data and code make it extremely easy to re-create reports of any level and detail. I toggled back and forth between the code, the book, and the reports that I had replicated in order to learn and absorb PROC REPORT.
"Lisa does an impressive job of handling the data manipulation and pre-processing that must come before the PROC REPORT step."
