Art Carpenter, an independent consultant and statistician, has been a SAS user since the mid-1970s. He provides training and instruction on the SAS macro language and other SAS topics to SAS users nationwide. In addition to being the general editor of the Art Carpenter SAS Software Series, his impressive list of publications includes Annotate: Simply the Basics, his co-authored Quick Results with SAS/GRAPH Software, two chapters in Reporting from the Field, and over four dozen papers and posters presented at the SAS Users Group International (SUGI) conference and various regional and international SAS Users Group conferences.
Art has served as a steering committee chairperson of both the Southern California SAS Users Group (SoCalSUG) and the San Diego SAS Users Group (SANDS) conferences. He has also served as a conference co-chair of the Western Users of SAS Software (WUSS) conference, and conference chair and Executive Board member at SUGI.Review:
Art Carpenter has been hard at work since his first edition was published in 1998. He has added enough new material to double the size of his original work. Many more complex ideas of macro usage are illustrated here, with diverse topics brought together and discussed as whole concepts. I would recommend this book to beginners as well as advanced programmers who wish to be proficient in their usage of the simple yet powerful SAS macro language. --Ronald Fehd, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
Art has once again written a fantastic SAS book. It is very complete in its coverage of the macro language, covering everything from the basics to advanced topics. It makes an excellent reference book with its clear layout. I would highly recommend it particularly to experienced SAS programmers who want a complete macro reference which extends to cover advanced topics. I wrote the "Advanced Macro Programming" course for SAS UK, and this would make a perfect companion to that course. In short, it's a fantastic book and contains plenty of new material compared to his first. It will surely pay for itself in no time. --Philip Mason, Wood Street Consultants
Having used SAS for 25 plus years, I can honestly say I am always amazed at what I learn from reading SAS Press titles and the little things I may have overlooked or forgotten. Art did an excellent job writing this book with plenty of good examples and well-documented bullets and callouts of each step within his examples. He has also included a number of good macros that could be used by any SAS developer and incorporate them into their library of tools. This is a must-have book for the serious SAS developer who wishes to use and learn the SAS macro language. --Charles Patridge, The Hartford Financial Service
