Get fast experience
I wasn't knowing anything about Crystal Reports, then it was needed that I design critical reports about some data, the project system engineers decided that Crystal Reports is the solution.
I bought the book, and it really helped me to do the required job, it took me less than 2 weeks to read it all, and it was really ver helpful.

Good beginner book
Lets be honest, any book that says Teach Yourself ... in 24 Hours is a beginner book. And as such, this book is great. I am a application programmer and needed a PRIMER to get started and this book not only allowed me to do that, but allowed me to meet my business critical deadlines on time. Although I may need another book for advanced topics in the future. I find that I can write most of the reports requested of me with this handy book. I even told Crystal Decisions that they should contact the author to have him write their manuals, which are inadequate and hard to follow.

Only for beginners
Like someone else said in his review, this book is good for beginners. I'd like to confirm that, and maintain that's its ONLY good for beginners. The book glazes over much of the material and never goes in depth for any of it. If you've already had just a little experience with crystal reports already, this book won't help you much at all. It can hardly be used as a good reference.
