This is the first Internals book I've ever read, and after a couple of chapters I am finding it to be an incredible learning journey. I've read the chapters that I felt were my strongest ground, yet with almost every sentence I've learnt something new. It's certainly not for newcomers to the SQL Server scene, and it's certainly not a How To - but for anyone who wants to understand what goes on underneath the hood in SQL Server, this is it!

A very useful book if you want to deep dive - as the name implies it isnt for everyone. Some highly obscure things in the book - and I have had my moneys worth from it.

Format: Paperback
If SQL Server held court, then the authors of this book would all be part of the inner sanctum. I would buy a book by any of these authors, just on their names, so finding them all in on publication is really a no-brainer.

Anyone wishing to learn more about how the SQL Server engine works, rather than just learning by rote how to do things, should read this book to gain insight into the reasons why/how you do things. As such this book is not really for absolute beginners, but if you are a quick learner you will soon be able to appreciate parts of this book. The book goes to levels often skipped over by other publications.

Despite having multiple talented authors and deep technical content I found the book to come across in a consistent and enjoyable style, anyone serious about SQL Server should have this on their bookshelves.

If you want to know the internal workings of SQL Server 2008 then this book is definitely for you, it contains a great deal of information regarding the inner workings of SQL Server.

A lot of hard has obviously gone into making sure the details are accurate, and once you have read this book you might end up catching yourself going into far more depth explaining topics in it to others then is needed...

This book is a treasure trove of good, useful information.
An excellent read, well laid out, extremely well written and a relatively easy to absorb format.
An absolute must if you want to dive head first into the nuts and bolts of SQL Server.
