I purchased this book along with another on SSRS. I spent more time with the other book because it contained better "early use" information than this book. As it turned out, I ended up using a different report writer (other than SSRS) and didn't spend much time with this book. The examples I did read were pretty good but seemed to move pretty fast. Maybe not the best learning tool. I did find that you must be prepared to actually perform the examples on your own computer in order to gain the best knowledge from this book. It could be that this a fact regardless of the technical manual -- but it means that you must have time to spend working the examples. You aren't going to pick this manual up and in one day be an SSRS expert.
