I have this book and yes it does have plenty of illustrations yes. Not bad book IMHO.

If you're comfortable with SSIS/SSRS then Parts 1, 3 and 4 will be very useful to you.

Good luck!

It takes a minimal capacity for rational thought to see that the corporate 'free press' is a structurally irrational and biased, and extremely violent, system of elite propaganda.
David Edwards - Media lens

Society has varying and conflicting interests; what is called objectivity is the disguise of one of these interests - that of neutrality. But neutrality is a fiction in an unneutral world. There are victims, there are executioners, and there are bystanders... and the 'objectivity' of the bystander calls for inaction while other heads fall.

My personal favorite for SSAS is SQL SErver 2008 Analysis Services Unleashed,

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Microsoft-SQL-Server-2008-Unleashed/dp/0672330563/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1352388963&sr=8-6

This one goes into the architecture as well as basic cube design best principles, about half way it starts to get into more advanced topics, it also touches on Data warehouse design principles, which are a handy skill to have.
