  1. Hi Michael,

    Thank you for the kind words. We always love working with you. Your books are both fun and wonder they are a hit with our readers.

    Being a SAS Press author, I can attest to the fact that being treated like a rock star is a lot of fun. But, the most enjoyment comes from having conference attendees tell you how something in one of your books helped them with their work. It is a fantastic feeling to know that your written expertise has helped somebody at their job.

    So many of the people I meet at SAS users groups have the potential to write a SAS Press book. I hope that your readers will click on your link, read the material, take your advice to heart, and then submit a proposal for a book on a facet of SAS they know very well.
