Google and a used book dealer (one can find used books on SAS for $5 or so)

There are so many books out there, then I can't possibly recommend one to you.  

Some are written for experienced developers who need to master yet another language, so the book is all about syntax and advanced programming ... others are written for somebody at the other end of the spectrum who has never written anything more than an equation in a spreadsheet cell.

You need to just go to the bookstore, or go to an online store and read the index and foreword yourself to see if the book meets your needs.

(Note this is a very generic answer, I'd give this same answer no matter what the subject matter is, because people all have different objectives and skill sets, and the best books are the ones that are aligned with your needs and objectives)

The ones I use are advanced for experienced developers, no way would they meet your needs.
