    I was asked to write a book review for Kirk's Proc SQL third edition book.

    Below is the book review.

    PROC SQL: Beyond the Basics Using SAS®, Third Edition

    Just like a fine wine that gets better with age, it comes as no surprise that Kirk Lafler's third edition of PROC SQL: Beyond the Basics Using SAS® has also gotten better and is full of in-depth knowledge and experience. Packed with more tips and productive ideas, any new or experienced SAS programmer can quickly master the full power of PROC SQL.

    I continue to depend on this book as my first choice for PROC SQL options and powerful features such as detail and summary information, queries, simple to complex joins, indexes, macro variables, metadata, and subqueries. The sample datasets and examples make these features easy to understand and apply. For more data transformations, there is a great section on data cleaning, filtering, de-duplication, and format revision.

    See Roger DeAngelis, CEO CompuCraft Ltd, review of my new SAS book, Clinical Data Quality Checks for CDISC Compliance Using SAS.                                                                                             

    A must-read and reference for all clinical programmers.  Data quality is fundamental for good clinical practice and this book is laser-focused on specific and critical programming techniques assuring compliant SDTM and ADAM data and reporting.  It is a comprehensive desk reference which will become a standard for the industry.  The included and well documented SAS code provides programmers with state of the art algorithms for validating and verifying STAM and ADAM datasets.

    SAS asked me to write a book review for The Little SAS book.  Please see below.

    From Good to Great

    The Little SAS Book: A Primer, Sixth Edition, book review by Sunil Gupta, Executive Director Data Sciences, Talentmine

    Now with over 350 pages, the sixth edition of The Little SAS book is still valuable today. The book contains all essential topics including SAS Base, excel files, ODS, basic statistics, macros and graphs.

    The book’s basic examples show a solid foundation of the SAS procedures as well as new SAS version options to save programmers time.  Often programmers continue to apply old methods, outdated syntax or create customized code when
    a new option or SAS procedure does the similar task.

    The text explanations from Susan and Lora are ideal for self-study learning SAS.  The line by line descriptions are effective to understand the impact of each SAS statement.  The bottom line is that The Little SAS book is still ideal for beginner and experienced level SAS programmers.  SAS beginners can jump start their SAS knowledge and experienced SAS programmers can leverage their understanding to new options and SAS procedures.
