Can you recommend a advanced Crystal Reports books on formulas and programming?

I have the Mastering Business Analysis with Crystal Reports by Chris Tull and I find it to be very generic without a lot of programming info and examples.

I use CR 8.5 and I want to know of any other recommendations on books you have read and found useful for Advanced CR users.  I am a Reporting and Data Analyst and I work with Charts, graphs and do detailed analyses and require knowledge of programming and formulas in CR.

Thank you for any recommendations you can give.

AGree ken's site is very useful.

Another source that I use extensively is the series by George Peck, The Complete Crystal Reports n  where n is the version number.

Having used books by both George and Ken in my opinion they are both useful and probably the best on teh matket at the moment.

George Peck wrote another book that is good too.
It is called "Crystal Reports Professional Results"
It focuses more on fine tuning your reports and formula than an overview on the whole tool:
