This post is a brief review of the book 'The Little SAS book' by Delwiche and Slaughter.

I came across this book in my first SAS position. It had been left behind by a former employee, or the company, and was sitting on the shelf of my cubical.

I had no experience with SAS, and all I had to refer to was the existing code in the system and this book.

As the title suggests it's quite a small book in IT terms, the fifth edition is 325 pages.

One benefit of this is the cost, which retails for about $50 on Amazon.com.

In summary it was an excellent introduction to programming in the SAS language.

The book is basically a programming guide, it's doesn't include content on the many complex SAS modules that are available.

For anyone that needs to program in Base SAS I would highly recommend this book.
