5.0 out of 5 stars More top notch content from SQL Server MVPs
There is no doubting the quality and content in this title. If I am 100% honest then I was disappointed that this book is thinner than version 1, by some 160 pages but has a similar chapter count, this, to my mind, means we are not diving quite so deep. There are lots of new areas covered and lots of new names as authors so it is still well worth investing in.

2.0 out of 5 stars The difficult sequel...
Not every success needs a sequel. Compared to the excellent vol. 1 there are several problems with this vol. 2. It is much more fragmented with many more contributors, perhaps all flocking to become part of a success. In other words, vol. 1 had longer articles with all the space needed and wanted by the author to deal with a given subject. The typical vol. 2 article is...

Not every success needs a sequel. Compared to the excellent vol. 1 there are several problems with this vol. 2. It is much more fragmented with many more contributors, perhaps all flocking to become part of a success. In other words, vol. 1 had longer articles with all the space needed and wanted by the author to deal with a given subject. The typical vol. 2 article is longer than a "mere" useful tip, but too short to really go anywhere - in other words: empty calories, idling... - This is all not to say the book is worthless, far from it , here and there it definitely has it highs as well the (too many) lows - hence two stars after all.

This review is from: SQL Server MVP Deep Dives, Volume 2 (Paperback)
Level 400 - i.e. for MCITP+ depth
As good as the first 'deep dives' book.

Make sure you contact the publisher if you want the pdf version though, Amazon purchases do not automatically update their database.
