1.0 out of 5 stars Very poor quality, 8 Jan 2014
= Durability:1.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:2.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:1.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Table Top Football (Toy)
I received this product as a Christmas gift, it lasted less than a day.
The pitch did not fit the grooves due to a drilled hole in the wrong place. The handles do not fit snugly on to the bars and when fitted have to go on at a slight angle ruining game play and aesthetics.
My 3 year old pulled on one end and the goal area came away from it's mounted points due to the very small tacks used.

To put it bluntly the build quality is horrendous, do not waste your money on this. If I had bought this I would have sent it back.

5.0 out of 5 stars SQL Server has grown up, and so have it's books, 9 Feb 2010
Whether you're using this book to study those awkward concepts for exams or are having issues on your production boxes this book is an absolute must have as it doesn't just deal with SQL Server but arms you with the information you need to know around SQL Server to allow you administer your environment successfully.

I was enticed to buy this book after attending sessions by several of the authors at SQLBits and various SQL user groups around the UK, these guys really know their stuff and present with real confidence. This contributes to a flowing writing style which is missing from many technical books. The only complaint I would have is that it should come with a warning on the front cover for your partner as you won't be able to put it down!
