You are looking for "Professional SAS Programming Secrets" by Rick Aster and
Rhena Seidman. Not only it is the best book ever written on the subject of SAS,
it is a book written by real programmers who love SAS, for people who also want
to be SAS programmers, not proverbial "users". Needless to say, the contents of
this marvel ideally suites your description.
