Any recommendations for Books on SSRS?

I'm new to SSRS and was wondering if anyone had any books they'd recommend. We're currently using Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2. Thanks. Bonnie

Hi, I would personally recommend getting a subscription to pluralsight and watching the videos by Stacia Misner. There are many great books, but these videos are better IMHO. [ http://www.pluralsight.com/courses/intro-ssrs-reporting][1] [ http://www.pluralsight.com/courses/intro-ssrs-basic-2][2] If you are dead set on a book, dont waste your money on an SSRS 2012 book as the tool has hardly changed sine 2008 R2.

Thank you @SQLShark, I will most definitely subscribe to pluralsight. If I decided to get a book, would you know if there's much difference between SSRS SQL server 2008 and SSRS SQL server 2008 R2?

It has been a while since I looked at 2008, but as far I recall a lot has changed in regards to look and feel. There is a list here of the changes. To be safe stick with books on that cover 2008 R2 onwards. https://www.simple-talk.com/sql/reporting-services/new-features-in-reporting-services-2008-and-2008-r2/
