Here is another review for this book, also from APress.
This was the first book I got from SQL Server 2008. It’s interesting how all the topics are presented because it takes you from very simple items like database fundamentals to way more complex ones like security and concurrency.
The good thing about it is that it’s easy. If you’re starting with SQL Server 2008 then this is the book for you. It will even explain the Codd’s Rules, amazing.
The bad thing is that is not a book for experts. In any case, if you’re an expert, you should be writing a book, not reading it.
Get it here at Amazon.com or directly from APress.
