I have written a chapter-by-chapter review of this book on [...]. the first part of this review follows:
I expected this book to give me an insight into what to do when I get various SQL Server problems. Identify the problem? How do I solve it? And can it give me an understanding as to why it occurred? Did the book fulfil these requirements?
There are two distinct parts to this book, internals and troubleshooting. The first section is more theoretical, and the second is more practical. The aim of the internals section is to provide a deeper background understanding for the subsequent troubleshooting section.
The topics covered are both diverse in terms of subject matter (e.g. hardware, concurrency, extended events) and in terms of the expected level of experience (e.g. PowerShell is introductory, and latches are advanced). Some of the subjects seem a bit off topic (Virtualization), and even esoteric (Spinlocks).

I think this is a great book for people initiating on performance troubleshooting ( DBA Jr and/ or semi Sr).
If you are a highly experienced DBA looking for in depth detail, then wait for the upcoming SQL 2012 Internals from Kalen Delaney.
With "Professional SQL Server 2012 Internals and Troubleshooting" you'll go to the next step in the same great way.
All SQL Server DBA will find something to satisfy them. And much more!
Both theoretical and practical, it leads you into the depths with profit.
I really enjoy. Hope you too :))
Part two of the book dives into the diagnostics and troubleshooting arena. First off, the book deals with the correct approach/best practices of troubleshooting and analysis. There are a plethora of diagnostics tools available today and sometimes the DBA is clueless about the quality of these tools. The book meticulously covers some of such solid tools like Performance Monitor, PAL, SQLDIAG, SQL Nexus, Powershell etc. There is one chapter dedicated to each of these tools. Extended events have come to the forefront with SQL Server 2012. There is now an inbuilt graphical interface that can be used. The best part is that they have a very low impact on the overall performance. Extended events are covered thoroughly in the book. The last chapter deals with SQL Server virtualization and how to use it within the enterprise.
Overall, I will give two thumbs up to the book. This can easily become a reference guide for any DBA during his day-to-day job responsibility. I will definitely recommend the book to my fellow DBAs.
