This review is from: Professional Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Analysis Services with MDX and DAX (Wrox Programmer to Programmer) (Paperback)
As a complete newbie to SSAS I found this really helpful.

I read it cover to cover over the space of 4 days and certainly feel massively more informed on the topic now.

Only criticisms I have are that the Understanding MDX chapter was pretty tough going and I feel should have had better explanations also a couple of sections in chapter 17 are baffling and I can only assume the wrong code snippets were printed (pages 788 and 794)

1.0 out of 5 stars Examples don't work, 13 Mar 2013

The problem with the book is it uses the generic Adventure Works Database. This changes regularly and as a hardly any of the examples and practices work. I changed some things to get it going but really its poor not to supply a database with the book. Given up after 7%
