5.0 out of 5 stars Advanced and In Depth 9 Mar 2010
Format:Paperback
I bought this book on the Kindle a few months ago. To be honest, it's likely not something you're going to want to read from cover to cover. However, in terms of being a desktop reference book, I'm not sure you could find anything better. This books covers almost every aspect you could imagine with regard to managing SQL Server 2005. The chapters are very very detailed and offer clear explanations, best practices, and even some useful scripts. I am planning on ordering the paperback copy of this book as well, just to have for reference in the office.

If you want to learn SQL Server or are studying for a certification, this is not the book I would start with. I have been working on my Microsoft SQL Server 2005 certification for some time now and in doing so have already read a number of books. If you're new to SQL Server, start somewhere else. The real value of this book is in it's practicality and it's ability to help a DBA with projects or day-to-day operations. This about as close as you can get to having SQL Server Books Online in a physical form you can flip through.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Ideal Reference Work 3 Mar 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have been administrating and developing SQL Server 2005 now for about three years and have acquired a number of books on specific SQL areas (e.g. Reporting Services), but whenever I need to tackle a new area I start with this book.

I love authoritative reference books that I can refer to on any subject to give me sound theory, explanation and practical advice. This is such a book. I have found it invaluable as a DBA and developer, especially for understanding first principles when approaching a new area of SQL 2005.

It doesn't repeat the SQL Books on Line material, or waste pages on too numerous screen-shots. Instead it delivers a comprehensive guide to SQL Server 2005 by practitioners who appear to thoroughly know their subject.

As to sufficient examples, it is difficult for the book to be all things to all people. In the areas I have read, it has given sufficient examples for the reader to understand the scope of functionality and enough to start experimenting with. As with most other SQL books, you will do well to search the web for additional example scripts that may demonstrate the functionality in a way that is better suited to your own working environment and database needs.

My only quibble is that the book is physically too large, so that the spine will eventually crease badly due to its width. Instead of giving you 2000 pages in one book (with a number of extra chapters on CD), a 2 volume comprehensive reference (of about 1200 pages each) would make it the ideal SQL Server reference set.

So, in summary, as a thorough one volume reference work you will not get much better than this, but as with most SQL books, use online materials for additional examples, and purchase additional books where you want to go much deeper into specific areas of functionality.

1.0 out of 5 stars Please don't waist your money 18 Jan 2010
Format:Paperback
I have learnt a number of software using books as it is my preferable way. In the past I have bought dozens of books in order to learn a new program or advance my knowledge. This is the worst book ever. There is no sample databases provided, therefore you end up just reading pages and pages of theory. You can't learn by reading, you have to try something out, make a mistake, correct it and learn from this mistake. How else can you learn something as practical as databases? The author just gives you almost 2000 pages of code and theory. Please don't waist your money.

5.0 out of 5 stars All DBA should have this on their book shelf - Review of Database Administrator SQLAuthority.com 23 Jun 2007
By Pinalkumar Dave - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
SQLAuthority.com Book Review :
Microsoft(R) SQL Server 2005 Unleashed (Paperback)
by Ray Rankins, Paul Bertucci, Chris Gallelli, Alex T. Silverstein

Short Review :
SQL Server 2005 Unleashed is focused on Database Administration and day-to-day administrative management aspects of SQL Server. All the chapters of this book are heavily based on Book On-line (BOL) and it continue discussing the topics, where BOL leaves off. This makes this book a good reference for those who are looking for additional information, tricks & tips, and behind the scene details. I recommend this book as a wonderful read and hands-on guide for quick reference for Database Administrators.

Detail Review :
Every database book is either for Database Administrators or Database Developers/Architecture. This book covers many details about Database Administration in depth, however there is enough information for Database Developer to satisfy their expectation. This book is more than just a syntax reference, as it continues the topic where Book On-line leaves off. This book provides a behind-the-scenes look into SQL Server, this is very important for experienced DBA. Many DBA does the same job everyday to maintain the SQL Server in optimal condition, there are many task which can be automated to save time and make Database Administration easier. The book covers various methods automatic the routine task of database backup, recovery, database maintenance tasks etc.

There are few new features introduced in SQL Server 2005. This book successfully covers almost all of them. I have been using SQL Server 2005 for almost two years and SQL Server for more than 5 years, I found this book interesting and informative.The chapter about SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS) (replacement of SQL Server 2000 Query Analyzer, Enterprise Manager and Analysis Manager) is quite accurate for those who wants to learn from beginning and it is must read. This book provides very good introduction to SQL Server Business Intelligence (BI) features - Analysis Services, Integration Services, Reporting Services. Backup are most vital responsibility of DBA, which is in depth covered in this book. Managing maintenance plans, backup strategies, backup methods, snapshot backup (new 2005 feature), Mirrored database for backup are highly relevant to backup process.

Authors have done good job keeping each chapter independent. I find it always easy to read when I do not have to jump pages in book to refer the examples of other chapters. Each chapter contains lots of figures about topic which authors are discussing. Occasionally, I felt that I am reading the BOL documentation due to nature of few of the topics. As per my opinion, it is unavoidable to stay away from BOL when writing about SQL Server. Authors have done their best to avoid duplication of the code and have pointed few times to BOL to refer advanced syntax, while they continued discussing about additional information and tricks extending BOL.

Lots of figures and lots of syntax makes this book larger than few other an average book - 1752 pages and 5 lbs. Due to this reasons few additional chapters are included onaccompanied CD. Do not forget to go over the CD, as it contains few interesting chapters - Transact-SQL Programming Guidelines, Tips, and Tricks, and SQL Server Full-Text Search. The index of book includes the chapters on the CD as well. I wish that all the chapters in CD were in book, just to have everything at one place. Few chapters in this book are very simple and placed on CD instead of the important and informative chapters, which are on CD currently.

Authors have explained T-SQL concept along with tips which makes this book interesting read. Some of the tips may be well known but still must read to understand the T-SQL completely.

Example : CHECK constraints allow insertions and updates to the table to proceed when the CHECK constraint expression does not evaluate to FALSE. A NULL value is considered to be unknown an does not evaluate to FALSE.

Book's inclination towards database administration sometimes makes the T-SQL tips interesting to read.

Example : The REORGANIZE operation can generate a large number of transactions during its execution. Another reason for disabling a non-clustered index is to reduce the space requirements when rebuilding the index.

Chapters of this books can be read independent to each other. If you want to read it in order, I recommend following order to read them.
Part I Welcome to Microsoft SQL Server
Part III SQL Server Administration
Part II SQL Server Tools and Utilities
Part IV Database Administration
Part VI SQL Server Application Development
Part V SQL Server Performance and Optimization
Part VII SQL Server Business Intelligence Features
Bonus Chapters on the CD

Pros :
In depth coverage of most of the Database Administrative Tasks.
Good coverage of T-SQL.
Interesting approach towards Database Administrative tasks with T-SQL
Simple and precise introduction to Business Intelligence (BI)
Full coverage of backup technology
Bonus articles in CD
Safari books online enabled

Cons:
Lack of examples or quiz at the end of chapters (for those who like to check their knowledge after reading chapter)
Shallow summary at the end of chapter
Chapter organization (order they are listed in book) can be better. Articles in CD are good and should have been included in main book.
Heavy book with more than 1700 pages.

Rating : 4 and 1/2 stars

In Summary, Every DBA should have this book on their book-shelf.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still the best SQL Server book ever 5 July 2007
By Brian Magill - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have owned the previous two versions of this book, for SQL 7 and for SQL 2000. I waited almost two years (seems like it..) for these folks to finally get the SQL 2005 edition out, and it's as good as the others. Randomly opening the book, I could not only start on any page, but I learned something immediately. The writing is incredibly clear and straightforward without being simple, and while large portions of this edition are probably redundant with previous editions, no other book on SQL Server spends more time open on my desk than "Unleashed". One of my favorite technical books, period.

5.0 out of 5 stars The most comprehensive SQL 2005 book in the market 25 Jan 2008
By Jaewoo Kim - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book covers most aspects of SQL 2005. Some topics are only covered at a perfunctory level (Business Intelligence, SSIS, T-SQL etc). But many of the topics, especially archtectural ones, are covered with high level of expertise.

If you need to buy one book that covers most aspects of SQL 2005 then this should be the one. It is better and more comprehensive than "SQL 2000 Unleashed", which was also an excellent book.

Here are the topics the book covers especially well:
1)SQL 2005 Install and upgrade
2)Replication
3)Data Mirroring and other high availability solutions.
4)Index and Statistics.
5)Locking and Deadlocks.

There are better books out there for each of individual the topics of SQL 2005. But there are no book I know of which covers them as comprehensively at a high level as this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars dotNet Developer 8 July 2008
By Harvey Bernstein - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
As a dotNet Developer, I am often called upon to write my own database code or maintain existing db code. I am also called upon to diagnose performance problems or set security. Sometimes on lightly staffed projects, I am a defacto DBA.

I have always strived to have a comprehensive understanding of the technologies I use. However, my level of understanding of SQL Server was more limited then my understanding of the other technologies I use.

I purchased this book based on existing Amazon recommendations. In particular, I was interested in the Performance and Security sections, as well as what is new. It did not disappoint. The depth on items like Indexes was exactly what I was looking for. The discussion of new items was enough to get we to a working level.

So it definitely fulfilled my needs and expectations.

However, the book seems aimed at DBAs. Given the number of topics covered in the book, I suspect it could not be comprehensive enough to take an intermediate DBA to the Advanced stage.

But for someone like me, who is often called upon to be an 'acting' DBA it serves as an excellent reference; in addition to providing a tutorial on the topics mentioned above.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book for a DBA 13 July 2007
By JD - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I read many books on SQL Server, and I would say this book is the best, by far. It is the most comprehensive book on SQL server 2005 for a DBA. It is also well written. The authors provide the most essential information in a logical sequence. It is a long read, but it is not filled with useless technical jargon like some other large technical books. The information contained in it is quite useful. The authors said they tried to edit it down where they could without sacrificing clarity.

Although you do not need to be an expert to read it, you should have some experience relevant to RDMS to get the most out of this book.
