This is a great book. Provides some good insight and ideas on solving some tough problems. Highly recommend it.
The level of knowledge and detail that Itzik, Dejan and Roger have and portray in this book is awesome. Do you want to know how SQL Server 2005 internally stores date/time values and what the pitfalls are that you might run into when programming against date/time values (one of the most common problems facing SQL programmers), this book has the answer.
With chapters on Stores Procedures, Transactions, temporary tables, views, the service broker and more.
Each chapter has excellent advice and knowledge and filled with sample code (available online). The book is targetted specifically at SQL Server 2005 and the new ways it handles things, new functions and commands.
My only concern and a slight one at that is that with the amount of information the authors are trying to portray in 500 pages, sometimes the reading is heavy.
An invaluable book for SQL Server 2005 programmers.
It's very well written. It addresses 'real world' issues and has plenty of examples to support the discussion. It's fairly dry subject material but Itzik keeps it interesting and the more you read, the more you want to read. Having read through it from start to finish, there was no feeling of wanting more. Everything that I wanted to see discussed was (Performance Tuning chapter was utterly superb) and it was discussed to the level I wanted.
This book is a gem for SQL developers!!! Highly recommanded!!!
