The Verse about the Book of the Dove (Голубиная книга, Golubinaya Kniga) is a medieval Russian religious ballad. At least 20 versions are known. They vary in length from 30 to over 900 lines. The poem is generally thought to have been written ca. 1500 in the Novgorod region, though Russian nationalists postulate its great antiquity. The earliest extant manuscript is dated to the 17th century.

Like with most things, Crystal Reports tends to be split into levels of complexity whenever possible. Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced are all used to describe books, courses and articles. The problem is that reporting requirements are dictated by the client and by the nature of the database being reported from.

Crystal Reports is one of the most powerful software packages on the market and is used across all business sectors and industries. The author writes: "Throughout my entire career, one of the most common phrases I hear is: 'The software can't do it.' As a result, Crystal Reports has a poor reputation within the IT community, and is one of the widest implemented, yet most underutilised software packages. Ninety nine percent of the time, Crystal Reports can do 'it', or rather could do it if the report writer knew how to write formulas. Yet, no Crystal Reports books available cover formulas in any sort of depth....until now." Formulas are as powerful to Crystal Reports as macros are to MS Excel. Unfortunately, while numerous books exist focusing on learning macros for all skill levels, none exist for Crystal Reports formulas. This book sets out to redress the balance and provide the first step by step guide for creating formulas, for all versions of Crystal Reports, which is aimed at people with little or no programming knowledge.

This book focuses on formulas alone. The author essentially talks you through building formulas by example after example using the reports that come with Crystal. It's a good book. The building a calendar report chapter and it's associated appendix were a bit of a waste -- how many people are ever going to want to do a report like that? This book is good for the beginning and intermediate report builder, especially for those with no formal training. The price is a bit high, but if you find just one formula explanation that helps you solve a problem with an important report it's worth the money. I wish there were a Kindle version and that the author would write another -- perhaps a series of Crystal formula and report design books. I have many technical books and manuals on my Kindle and I'd like to carry this on my Kindle as well.

The book is helpful especially with formulas. Anyone who works with Crystal Reports and who is not a mathematician would love this book.

This book was published at a time when Crystal Reports 2008 was the current version. At this point in late 2013, Crystal Reports 2008 is now two versions back so if you buy this book, you will have to keep this mind. That really isn't as bad as it sounds because the author spends very little time talking about the Crystal Reports interface (he assumes you know your way around already). So this is not a book for Crystal Reports beginners.

You may also have difficulty getting a copy of the Xtreme database used throughout this book as a data source. It is still on the SAP web site, but you really have to dig for it.

One big problem with this book is that the author does not show you what the final output for each formula should look like. While he gives you the formulas themselves, there are often dependencies that if not fully understood can make the formula not work. Then you are left to 'scratch your head' over it. While this might have added many pages to the books it would make it more usable. Or it could have been put on an DVD accompanying the book (especially considering the high price of this book).

Worse part of this book are the typos and outright mistakes. The author references previously written formulas that he spells incorrectly. And even worse, he sometimes references non existent formulas and you are expected to use than in a new formula.

This author has more work to do make this worth the money being charged for the book. I do not recommend this book unless you really want to learn about Crystal Reports 2008 formulas and don't mind sifting through a lot of sloppy mistakes that could have been avoided by proof-reading.

I've been preparing for the CR certificate exam for the past 5-6 months, and I think I went through every single CR book there is out on the market. This one is one of the best I've seen as it successfully ties in all the knowledge that I gained by reading other study books.

Usually, other books are 95% theory, and very little actual practice examples, where this one is all about (formula) examples, and just a few short paragraphs about the theory. Before you take this book into your hands it is highly recommended that you have some basic knowledge and understanding of CR, whether it's the 2008 version, or an earlier one. The author even forewarns the same, so don't get disappointed if you find it too challenging to go through as it is not meant for the beginners.

I believe the author did a wonderful job by compiling the book, and I find every aspect of it very useful and easy to follow. I am not a programmer and formulas for me were the most challenging part until I completed reading this book. I agree that Creating a Calendar Report chapter (30 some pages) may not be for everyone, but you never know when you may run into a situation where you'd be happy to know where to look for a solution.

The only thing that bothered me here and there was that I found some errors throughout the book, whether they were just simple typos, or the author spelling out variable or field names incorrectly. Some common sense and a bit of patience helped at the end. Further, this book is pricier than some other study books that are double the size (and smaller font), but this one is worth every penny.

I bought this book on recommendation and I think it’s perfect for someone trying to get the hang of Crystal Reports formulas. The writing style is clear and straight-forward, the complex formulas are broken down line by line with plenty of explanation and examples are very close to the real world (a couple of which I have personally used already and I’m only half way through).
Also, as the main emphasis is on formulas, it doesn’t make much difference which version of CR you’re using.
If you want to be above the average Crystal Reports Developer, this book is a must have.

I have a whole collection of Crystal Reports books as reporting is what I do for a living and must admit this one is particularly good. It wouldn't be an exaggeration to say it is the most advanced one on the market as it covers formula writing only. Despite the complexity of the subject, it uses simple and understandable descriptions. The second part of the book is extremely helpful as gives you a full library of sample formulas which was a great head start to writing some of my own. It costs a bit more than other Crystal Reports books but it was worth every cent
