I don't think there is any shortage of SAS books, since it's been around so 
long.  I think they even have their own Press.  The books don't need to assume 
you do or don't know R.  If you know nothing of SAS, I personally recommend The 
Little SAS Book: A Primer.  It's short, basic, and useful for beginners.
