This review is from: Expert Performance Indexing for SQL Server 2012 (Paperback)
Let's face it: indexing is a dry, dry subject. Yet, it is an area that can profoundly impact the performance of your database application or reports. The authors, Jason Strate and Ted Krueger, manage to turn this dry topic into an enjoyable read with many analogies and lots of real-world advice. Besides delving into the different types of indexes, reasons for using them, index tuning, and maintenance, they also provide a nice introduction to internals that won't make your eyes roll up into your head.
I recommend this book to all SQL Server DBAs and developers out there who care about performance!
