Book Review

"This book is the 'Swiss Army Knife' of books addressing this very timely topic of Healthcare Data analysis. All the key areas necessary for the prospective, current, and seasoned healthcare analyst are skillfully covered in just over 200 pages. The authors were able to do this by interleaving the text with many relevant links to related sites. A big plus for this book is a balance between theory and practical application. This is accomplished by including real-life case study analysis using SAS Enterprise Guide satisfying the need of the programming 'Junkie' and the beginner alike. This book is clear, concise, and very detailed, which will help make you a better healthcare analyst you should have your personal copy on hand for sure."
