Format: Paperback
First, the book itself is rather huge, considering it says "pocket" in the title. It is about 600 pages and somehow it seems like there's a few hundred more too. Like his others, it is an impressive book and for the price, you are not going to find a book with a higher quality of content. I've had it a few months now. Read every chapter at least once, some a few times. Picked up many ideas, tips and tricks. Get this one!

This small pocket book is a great resource for IT admins that need to have a quick guide at their fingertips to conquer SQL Server 2012. It's easy to read and simple to use, whether as a day-to-day manual or a reference guide to Microsoft SQL Server 2012.

I found it had a good balance of both step-by-step implementation and as well as sections with more expanded detail. The thing I really like about this book though was the size. It easily fits in your hand and is a perfect traveling companion. This book was also helpful figuring out a few things I didn't see in the other reference guides for SQL Server 2012.

The material is covered in a detailed manner that remains pretty easy to digest and absorb on the go. The author, William R. Stanek, is a Microsoft technical guru and is the best of the best in computer writing for a reason.

Overall, he wrote a good book.

Disclosure: The publisher of the book provided a free copy for this review.

This resource is definitely a keeper. It has depth and even some verve. While not for casual reading, it is most assuredly for casual to high-end database users. The level of detail is high, while not an exhaustive concordance.
