Well I'm about 10-12% of the way through this book and I know more about SQLServer inner workings than any other book has given me. Every single page of this book is packed with useful information and tuning tips. I'm more of a creative solutions person than a technical analytical person but I understood everything that has been so clearly explained in this book.
