In this blog, I’d like to give special thanks to the people below who have taken time to write reviews for my book MDX with SSAS 2012 Cookbook.

“What I like about the cookbook style is the scenario and solution design. ”

Dan English

“The structure of the books is very similar and is again very easy to follow.”

Gerhard Brueckl

"This book is a must have. I have struggled trying to find a book with good illustrations and easy to follow samples UNTIL this book!"

Desert Fun

“I recommend this book to anyone regardless of MDX exposure, really great to have a reference like this book when you are trying to work through tough requirements."

"MDX with SSAS 2012 Cookbook" has a good chapter and topic organization which starts simply, but not too simply, and builds in complexity. "Elementary MDX" sets the stage for the expected level of knowledge with the other chapters building from that knowledge base. I particularly liked the chapters on "Working with Time", and "Business Analytics" because the regression and non-allocated expenses are tough problems for MDX newbies to solve."


In the blog below, I’ve given my thanks to Vincent Rainardi for his quick reviewing.

August 29, 2013 2 comments

I have been absent from this blog for the last few months. For those who have noticed, I’d like to offer my apology and also provide an excuse. I hope that co-authoring a book is a good enough excuse.

For the last few months, I have been working on the MDX with SSAS 2012 Cookbook (many late-night writing). I am very pleased to announced that the MDX with SSAS 2012 Cookbook is now published.

It is available on both Amazon and From the publisher’s site, you can download the sample chapter, and all the MDX script files.

I feel quite relieved that I have reached this milestone. I am eager to come back to do more blogging on MDX and T-SQL, and SSIS/SSAS/SSRS.

(I am not sure why there is only the Kindle Edition available on Amazon. I’ll be get more info from the publisher.)
