I have finished these cover to cover and now need new reading material. Any suggestions? Any good SSRS books out there? I am a Report Developer if that helps.

http://www.amazon.com/Common-Table-Expressions-Joes-Pros%C2%AE-ebook/dp/B00CTOT862/ref=sr_1_20?ie=UTF8&qid=1403877111&sr=8-20&keywords=joes2pros
http://www.amazon.com/Queries-Certification-Training-Tutorial-Microsoft/dp/0985226897/ref=sr_1_44?ie=UTF8&qid=1403877150&sr=8-44&keywords=joes2pros
http://www.amazon.com/Microsoft-Server-Fundamentals-Developer-Reference/dp/0735658145/ref=sr_1_sc_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1403877189&sr=8-1-spell&keywords=itz+ben+gan
http://www.amazon.com/Microsoft-High-Performance-Functions-Developer-Reference/dp/0735658366/ref=sr_1_sc_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1403877189&sr=8-2-spell&keywords=itz+ben+gan
http://www.amazon.com/Microsoft-Server-2008-Reporting-Services/dp/0071548084/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1403877247&sr=8-2&keywords=ssrs

Would Grants Query Tuning book be good for me as a Report Writer or is this mainly aimed at DBA's? http://www.amazon.com/Server-Query-Performance-Tuning-Experts/dp/1430242035/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1403877309&sr=1-1&keywords=grant+fritchey

Performance tuning is good for everybody. Though there are other things to consider when looking to tune reports besides just the tsql.

I would also recommend my book

Which book is that SQLRNNR so I can look it up? Love reading the SQL books.

I'll Probably then order Query Tuning today since you said its good for everyone. I wonder if I could get Grant to autograph it

Oh and FWIW - I am sure Grant will autograph the book. You see him doing that sort of thing at all sorts of events.

Nice! SQLRNNR thanks for the recommendations. I know it says its for 2012. So its probably got a lot of the new 2012 functions in there, but by chance do some of your recipe's work for 2008? Also would you be willing to autograph a copy? I'm a nerd.

Many of the recipes work on 2008. There is some functionality that did not change with the 2012 release.

And yes, if we cross paths I can autograph it.

I purchased Grant's book "SQL Server 2008 Query Performance Tuning Distilled" and liked it.
