Don't you be in a hurry...
Wish I could get a refund or a better book...
This ain't the one.
For those of us always looking for ways to keep sharpening our SSRS skills, there is value to be found here. Patience is needed. Sometimes it just needs a little thought and fiddling to figure out the author's intent. This applies especially to the SSAS reports.
If you have the patience, you are going to be hard pressed to find another book that will help you dig into the topic of building "expert" reports. So many other books give an overview of SSRS and do not spend enough time with the ins and outs of actual SSRS report writing. At least with any depth.
I do not think this book needs to be slammed with a one star to make the point that the editing could have been better but I do think the review by Mr. Zucker deserves a better response from Mr. Turley than it got.
It is not our job, Mr. Turley, to spend OUR time editing YOUR book. You are supposed to be the expert that knows more than us and, thus, can either do a better job of reviewing your own work or finding someone who you feel is on your level who can do it for you and has the time. Your response to Mr. Zucker seemed to imply that we should send you money for your book so we can edit it for you.
The reviews written after Mr. Zucker's also seemed to go to the other extreme, almost sounding like friends of the author reacting to the negative comments of Mr. Zucker or, perhaps, as people who are already expert enough to recognize the value in the content of the book but not really needing it themselves. Such people would care far less about any of the things in the book that were of primary concern to Mr. Zucker or anyone else trying to learn new things.
The book starts with basic concepts and essential techniques in report design with Reporting Services. Then it dives into 63 in-depth topics on advanced reporting design. The recipes are generally organized with several sections:
1. Product versions that the recipe could be applied to
2. What prerequisite skills needed
3. How to design the report in a step by step recipe style
4. Final thoughts on the recipe
5. (When applicable) Credits and related references are listed at the end
This book was available just before SQL Server 2008 R2 went RTM in April. One thing of note is that quite a few recipes in the book use SQL Server 2008 R2 specific technology (such as domain scope, maps, aggregates of aggregates, and read-write report variables).
To sum it up, it is a great reference to those who want to create some non-trivial reports.
Why not giving it a five star? Some of the content was previously published on the web as blog posts etc.
