Personally, I thought the SQL coverage was really good - including security and stored procedures, but that the VB.Net coverage didn't provide as much detail as I had hoped.
The main reason I bought this was to try to find some answers to holes I felt other authors had left - deployment strategies and examples (including the SQL portion), dealing with text and binary objects and maximizing application performance. These topics were covered very lightly or not at all in this book.
I also thought the author spent too much time on details that aren't really useful. Its pretty interesting that you can modify table structures on the fly, but how many production applications actually do that? I would have appreciated much more time on reading and updating data than all of the stuff surrounding manipulating the schema. My normal mode of operation is to modify the table in the Enterprise manager and let it generate a SQL script for me to build the database. I don't plan on writing programs to modify the database structure; I'd rather program to modify its contents. He also spends a chapter on views from SQL, but views aren't used in any VB code anywhere in the book.
My final criticism is this - the SQL material and VB material are too separate. For instance, he spends a lot of time on stored procedures and their power. He mentions some of the ways they can be used in VB. That would have been a great time to show VB and utilize the procedures he just developed. Instead, the utilization happens about 200+ pages later.Read more ›
The other thing about the author is that he replied to my email about an issue not mentioned in the book as soon as he received it. I strongly recommend this book.
