Good overview but often too basic
Ganz has put together a fairly good book that provides an overview of several different reporting options for VB/VB.NET developers. His coverage of different 3rd-party solutions such as Crystal Reports and ActiveReports is one of the highlights of the text. I was unhappy with the focus on tabular reports, with basically no coverage of more graphical presentation options like charts and graphs. These are often more challenging to develop, and expert advice from a source like this would be quite valuable. The book also seemed to have too much of a focus on building specific reports for specific business requirements, and not enough on building more generalized solutions to cover a wider range of reporting problems for end users.

Business requirements driven Reporting Book
Most of the technical books on the market are organized to address a specific technical issue.
This book allows you to search based on business requirements. This is a very unique approach
and helpful for developers. Additionally, there are many effective working examples.
It also discusses different reporting tools such as VS-View, Crystal Reports, Active Reports, and OLAP.
I would strongly recommend this to any company which uses more than one reporting package.
It is a valuable reference tool. It will certainly be helpful in making technical/reporting decisions.
