Must have for MS SQL Programmers
I maintain several ASP applications with MS SQL backends and with this book I'm able to do things with SQL queries I never thought possible.
This book has a thorough index and great code examples making it a perfect reference manual for solving complex SQL query problems.
This is the only book you'll need for Transact-SQL.

A great one for DBA's and developers too
This book is unique. It doesn't read like all the other Sql Server books I have. Its totally different and fresh.
The expert discussions of statistical functions in the language is like nothing else I've ever read. The full-text discussion, the Ole Automation discussion, and the undocumented chapter are all first rate. I loved the null values chapter and the DML/DDL chapters. They are also first rate.
I can't think of a better value for the money than this book. It's very tight, and every page has some new tidbit that you'll be glad you read.

Written by a guru programmer for programmers
This book is a work of brilliance. I felt like I had an expert coder sitting there with me teaching me. So many things I liked - too many to mention. I came into this book thinking of tsql as a weak language. I left it feeling like tsql was stronger than pl/sql, the language I learned when I was an oracle dba.
