“The guys on this book really do know their stuff and they have managed to make the book interesting, engaging and above all… really useful! The detail in here is obviously from real-world experience and not a mash up of SQL Books Online and TechNet articles. If you are a SQL Server administrator I would highly recommend that you buy this book, I can guarantee that you will learn something new!”

“Having attended various sessions on performance analysis and troubleshooting of SQL Server by the writers from this book at various SQL Server Community events my expectations from the book were extremely high and I must tell you this book has far exceeded them. This book is full of real world examples and actually helps you manage your SQL Server environment better by providing you the tools and methods to not only attack and troubleshoot various issues encountered but even prevent them from happening. The language is subtle with fodder for a wide audience whether you are a novice or master SQL DBA. This book is a must have in your arsenal as a SQL DBA and I cannot recommend it enough!”

“Whether you’re using this book to study those awkward concepts for exams or are having issues on your production boxes this book is an absolute must have as it doesn’t just deal with SQL Server but arms you with the information you need to know around SQL Server to allow you administer your environment successfully. I was enticed to buy this book after attending sessions by several of the authors at SQLBits and various SQL user groups around the UK, these guys really know their stuff and present with real confidence. This contributes to a flowing writing style which is missing from many technical books. The only complaint I would have is that it should come with a warning on the front cover for your partner as you won’t be able to put it down!”
