4.0 out of 5 stars Useful book with kindle formatting issues 12 Nov 2013
By Yet another music geek - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've been reading this book as a general review and as an intro to SQL-Server specific design considerations, since I've been an Oracle DBA since the Dark Ages. It's a well-written, straight-forward book that I believe complete beginners could also jump into and get a lot out of. My one quibble is that in the Kindle version, formatting issues make some examples unclear.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book. 31 Jan 2013
By David Venegoni - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Having just begun developing SQL relational databases, this book does an excellent job of covering all areas of RDBMS's. The book is written very conversationally, which makes it very easy to follow, but there may be too much filler for some. I highly recommend it, regardless.
