Avoid this book. It was written by ten different people and it shows in the text - overlapping material and total lack of flow make it impossible to get a grasp on Analysis Services. It appears that many of the authors have difficulty understanding and adequately explaining the concepts themselves.
The Analysis Services tutorials included with SQL Server and Books Online are much more informative - with deliberate, well documented hands-on tutorials.
This is NOT the reference you are looking for.

I bought Sakhrs version of this book for SQL Server 7. This is not just an upgrade but a look at the new functionlity found within SQL Server 2000.
This book is a dream if you are involved within Analysis and even looking at the new DTS Analysis functions has helped me.
Comparing this with other books, by far this is the one that is well written and doesnt just come out with the obvious.

I found this book to be helpful in understanding how to utilize multidimensional database design. It was nice to see that Microsoft has some affordable alternatives one can turn to in the data mining and data warehousing market. Once again WROX has produced a helpful product for professionals in the computer industry.

Been a Wrox fan for some time. This is the worst book their team has produced. The material is cursory at best and totally theoretical. Very few practical examples. Never thought I would point to an MSPress Step-by-Step book, however it is far superior to this junk.

I tried really hard to find anything positive to say about this book...but alas. Being a Wrox fun for a few years, I was greatly disappointed by this book. Don't be misled by the "Professional" word in its title. You won't find anything "professional" in it. It doesn't even succeed in giving you a good panoramic view of the SQL Server Analysis Services. Example, try to find some information about LookupCube - forget it. The authors seem to be completely out of sync with each other. At some point, the book says that the private dimensions have no advantages over shared dimensions. Later it says that private dimensions preserve shared memory because the shared dimensions are cached.
I highly recommend the "Step by Step" book or "Professional SQL Server 2000 DTS" if you want to learn something of value about data warehousing with Analysis Services.
