I try and read each night before I go to bed and I just loved the book.
LeBre
The book focuses on Merge Replication, a Microsoft-supported technology to efficiently synchronize data between one or more servers and multiple clients.
Maarten Struys
This book was quite thorough but not written like a typical tech-related book... It was to the point, well guided, well formed and easily read.

This book by Rob Tiffany is an excelent example of 'How To Get Things Done'. With easy reading text a whole system is configured from scratch without too much fuss on 'why' and 'what'. System integrity, security and performace are major points of concern in his book.

In no time you have a system up and running and this book gives enouch information to extend it on your own once you have a working system.

This is a book for the practical minded engineer, for use in a project that has a deadline to keep, for testing the feasability of some idea. It gets you started in a minimum of time.

It is clearly not a book discussing all kind of possiblities of a product or technique. It is also not a book for a starting engineer, some knowledge about systems and databases is a must.

Books like this are helpfull in delivering what the customer ask in time. More books like this needs to be written.

Rob is the real deal. He wrote this book from the trenches...hands on, real-world deployments. Simply put, he is the guy Microsoft would drop-ship into the biggest, most strategic, and difficult SQLCE replication deployments out there with a directive to "make it succeed". This book is filled with prescriptive, real-world advice on how to do it right.

If you are doing replication with SQL Server Compact Edition (SQLCE), this will be the best $20 you will ever spend.

I was pleasantly surprised at how concise this book is in presenting a scalable data synchronization architecture and the actual configuration steps for implementing it. It reads mostly like a setup guide or instruction manual rather than a discussion.

Could have gone into details for a republisher scenario, but, overall, the book was excellent. I would recommend it to any IT professional.

This book was quite thorough but not written like a typical tech-related book... It was to the point, well guided, well formed and easily read. I read it in one sitting in about 3 hours and I know that I have a much better grasp on Merge Replication with SQL Server 2008.
