Too Busy to Write? Review Instead!

If you have technical and teaching abilities but are too busy to write a book, consider reviewing instead. We are always looking for qualified technical reviewers to help with our book development process! Reviewers receive a copy of the book when it’s published, book credit to be used in the SAS Store, and much gratitude from SAS and SAS Press authors for your help!
