As the year comes to a close, you have no doubt seen by our many book promotions how busy all of us in SAS Press have been this year. For me personally, it has been a very productive and gratifying year to see three of my book projects become a reality – Just Enough SAS: A Quick-Start Guide to SAS for Engineers by Bob Rutledge, Output Delivery System: The Basics and Beyond by Lauren Haworth, Cynthia Zender, and Michele Burlew, and Combining and Modifying SAS Data Sets: Examples, Second Edition by Michele Burlew. Needless to say, I have been very fortunate to work with some very talented and dedicated authors who are passionate about SAS software, and who help make my job easy! As any author and editor will attest, lots of hard work and long hours go into publishing a book, and it’s certainly rewarding to see the finished product.
Though the entire SAS Press group has a well-stocked pipeline of books to publish next year, and the next year for that matter, here’s a snapshot of what some of my authors and me will be working on when we get back from the holidays:
- SAS Functions by Example, Second Edition by Ron Cody
- Statistical Programming in SAS by John Bailer
- CRM Segmentation and Clustering Using SAS Enterprise Miner, Second Edition by Randy Collica
- Creating Custom Tasks for SAS Business Intelligence Applications Using Microsoft.NET by Chris Hemedinger
- Decision Trees for Business Intelligence and Data Mining Using SAS Enterprise Miner, Second Edition by Barry de Ville
- The DOCUMENT Procedure: Simply The Basics by Michael Tuchman
- A Carpenter’s Collection of Advanced Techniques for SAS Power Users by Art Carpenter
- The Survival Guide to Cost and Profitability by Tony Adkins and Peter Turney
These are just a few titles, but it gives you a good idea of the broad scope of topics that we offer to help users solve everyday business problems and become more productive with SAS.
Until next year, Happy Holidays!!
