The 8th annual Krispy Kreme Challenge race was just held in downtown Raleigh, NC. This event was started in 2004 as a dare among a few NC State undergrads. They had this idea to race 2 miles to the local Krispy Kreme doughnuts, down a dozen of the confections, and race the 2 miles back to campus. A race that began as a whim has turned into one that attracts thousands of runners--and as many spectators.
In a way, developing SAS Press books is similar, right? Authors log hours and hours preparing, race toward their next milestones, and ultimately finish their books. On the sidelines, family, friends, editors, and reviewers cheer them on, helping them reach their goals and encouraging their best form.
While not all SAS or JMP users aspire to be authors, many of you want to be among the cheering crowd, helping your favorite authors bring new books to the market. Maybe you’re a subject matter expert. Maybe you represent a novice to a particular topic. Whatever your talents, bring them to the SAS Press program and cheer on SAS Press authors by becoming a technical reviewer. In exchange, you’ll receive much gratitude from SAS Press authors, along with a thank you from SAS—book credit!
