If you are in clinical field, I would strongly recommend -
Common Statistical Methods for Clinical Research with SAS Examples by Glenn A. Walker.
This book almost covers all SAS Stat procedures applicable in clinical trials.

I work in the SAS Publications Division. I am not sure if this is what you are looking for. Here is a list of all the Procedures in SAS/STAT.
Here is a book on the Statistical Graphics Procedures you may want to check out. Statistical Graphics Procedures by Example: Effective Graphs Using SAS

The book is a SAS version of teh author's popular book "Discovering Statistics Using SPSS." He admits that he doesn't know SAS, so he brought in a co-author to write the sections that involve SAS syntax.
There is not much programming. The data are analyzed with standard SAS/STAT procedures such as TTEST, GLM, and MIXED. The book is an easy to read text book for social scientists, and is not heavy on the math (for example, I don't think there are any matrix equations.).
The author is British and there is a lot of British humor. The tone is irreverant and a lot of examples involve sex, drugs, and other topics that psychologists and social scientists study. I thought it was funny and fun to read, but conservative readers should beware.
A typical chapter might have 15 pages of theory/explanation before the SAS code appears. Then there is a few pages that discuss how to interpret the output. Sidebars include potential pitfalls.
If I was teaching myself elementary statistics, I think I would enjoy reading this book. You won't get a deep understanding, but you'll get a solid foundation and an appreciation for the subject.
