Werken Met SAS

One longtime international attendee is the SAS author, Erik Tilanus, who hails from the Netherlands.  Erik...

Which Little SAS Book?

One of the problems that Lora Delwiche and I face as authors of two books with similar titles (The Little SAS Book and The Little SAS Book for Enterprise Guide) and multiple editions (five of LSB and three of LSBEG) is explaining how the books are different. The two books are totally different–and complementary....

The Little SAS Book Fifth Edition

Five editions is a lot! If you had told me, back when we wrote the first edition, that some day we would write a fifth; I would have wondered how we could possibly find that much to say.  After all…it is supposed to be The Little SAS Book, isn’t it? But those clever folk...

Is There Any Better Way? Publishing Process For CDISC Standards

  1. The Pain I read from Lex Jansen (@LexJansen) that CDISC SDTM v1.3 and SDTMIG v3.1.3 were newly released. It’s pretty nice since CDISC SDTM was supposed to be released semiannually in the new publishing cycle. We can see the team put great efforts on this new version, but frankly speaking, this delivery...

The Reviewer Is Always Right

…about something …and it’s up to you to figure out what. At SGF I had the honor of participating in a panel discussion titled “So You Want to Be a SAS Press Author!”  The panel was organized by Nancy Brucken, moderated by Michael Raithel and included authors Art Carpenter, Cynthia Zender, and Mike Molter....

Copyrights and Apple Pie

Like all writers (and artists, musicians, software developers, and other creators of content) I am concerned about the problem of copyright infringement. (Here is my previous post about this.)  So I was interested to find out that while I was at the Western Users of SAS Software conference, there was a veritable brouhaha about...

Does Crime Pay?

Does Crime Pay?

Answer:  It certainly doesn’t pay authors. My sister recently told me that the Sacramento public library lists one copy of The Little SAS Book in their catalog.  However, it turns out that someone has stolen that one copy.
