Lots of theory, not much practice,
This review is from: Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Analysis Services Unleashed (Paperback)
A disappointing purchase. I've previously read Microsoft's "SQL Server 2005 Analysis Services - Step by Step" which was an excellent book. I decided to purchase this "Unleashed" version and was very disappointed. So many examples on using script to modify cubes when most sensible developers would be using Visual Studio most of the time. Too theoretical and not very practical. Currently gather dust. Definitely not for the beginner.

This is an interesting comment because I loved their previous book for precisely the same reason
Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Analysis Services
I am planning to buy this one because I know I'll find stuff I don't already know and/or understand.
Yes, I think this book is not aimed at beginners at all (at least the previous one was not)
