The Expat Guide to Living and Working in Australia by ExpatArrivals
the content of the book is good, although i was through it in 30 mins. not sure it justifies the £5 price tag. i would have give it a better rating if it was in the 99p category.
SQL Antipatterns: Avoiding the Pitfalls of Databas&hellip by Bill Karwin

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth a read, 10 April 2011
As other reviews on here have said... if you have a few years of DBA/Dev experience then you really shouldn't be getting caught out by these anti-patterns. Having said that, I did enjoy reading it. Also, if you are spotting the mistakes in the patterns early on then it's a good confirmation that you know what you are doing!
I gave it 4 stars because I enjoyed the read, I would have given it 5 if I had learned more new stuff. If you are new to DBA/Dev then it would probably be a 5 star book for you.
Professional SQL Server 2008 Internals and Trouble&hellip by Christian Bolton

The guys on this book really do know their stuff and they have managed to make the book interesting, engaging and above all... really useful! The detail in here is obviously from real-world experience and not a mash up of SQL Books Online and TechNet articles.

If you are a SQL Server administrator I would highly recommend that you buy this book, I can guarantee that you will learn something new!
