This book covers everything necessary to produce a data driven report. I tend to keep away from books that say you can learn a given subject in 24 Hours!

Its okay. I dip in and out as and when I need something. I suppose I use it more of reference guide for when i don't know something.

If you want to fall asleep try reading it cover to cover. :)

I am trying to decide if I want to buy this book. So I go look at the Table of Contents. Well It starts with chapter 15? What is in chapters 1-14? Amazon chose to leave those pages out so I have to buy the book, but I am not going to buy the book since I can't see what is in this book. I understand why they are leaving out pages. But they should not touch the Table of Contents! Sorry - no sale.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poorly written, poorly executed, not good for a beginner to SSRS. 11 July 2014
By ad_crumenam - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is an abysmal disappointment. It does not explain concepts thoroughly in some instances, and in others it goes way too deep into the weeds when you're just trying to wrap your head around simple concepts. It is not a good book for a beginner (like I am) and the exercises are very hard to follow. The language in the book does not even match the product and the screenshots are very poor, making it next to impossible to successfully complete exercises unless you already know how the product works...in which case, what do you need the book for?

This book is a disappointment; Wrox is usually my go-to company to learn a new product but I am disappointed with this book. I'm only a quarter of the way through it and I'm ready to use it as a doorstop instead. Save your money.
5.0 out of 5 stars You Can Never Go Wrong With a WROX Professional Series Book 27 May 2015
By Hemlock - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The WROX Professional series is the epitome of the technical doorstop, packed full of information that is needed by someone but more information than would normally needed by anyone. You buy these books for reference in a few chapters, maybe even half the book, but the entire volume is never applicable to a single reader. Nor should it be.

With the book on your desk, or better, in your Kindle app so it's easier to carry, you'll have the details you need to tackle any project involving Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) with confidence. Paul Turley is both an acknowledged expert and a great technical writer and along with his co-authors he separates the details from the fluff, providing the professional with what they need to do their job efficiently and effectively. You can never go wrong with a WROX Professional series book.

Over the years I've come to trust that the Professional series is the best place to start when you are exploring a new technology or just need an in-depth reference for one the other technologies you currently use.

2.0 out of 5 stars Great possibilities but no data for examples. 4 Nov. 2013
By Paul A. Sparrow - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My first big problem with this book is the examples used in the text are based off a database that you can't properly download. It's a specific version of the Advertureworks file that is used and when you go to the book site the file downloaded is not an mdf file and can't be created into a database. Therefore you need to write you own queries and try to replicate the best you can.
