What is this book?

SPSS Programming and Data Management: 
A Guide for SPSS and SAS Users

The book was released by SPSS on January 7th, 2004. Here is the description found on SPSS's site:

SPSS is pleased to announce the availability of "SPSS Programming and Data Management: A Guide for SPSS and SAS Users" written by SPSSX list member, Raynald Levesque, already well known for his practical solutions to complex SPSS programming problems. 

The book reveals the wealth of functionality beneath the SPSS graphical user interface, with detailed examples of command syntax, the macro facility, scripting, and the new Output Management System. Until now, no other book has focused on these features, and many users have been unaware of the data management power and flexibility available in SPSS. The book also contains a chapter for users familiar with SAS, demonstrating how many common data management tasks are performed in both SAS and SPSS.
