I must really be a Dummy
I'm new to SQL/SQL Server, and was looking for a basic intro to the package. The book does an excellent job introducing all of the features and functions, but not much else. Real-world examples were there, but very limited. As I read, I often found myself asking, in a manner of speaking, "sure, that's what button I push, but WHY do I push it?"
I did walk away with an appreciation for the complexity of SQL Server 7. Save yourself the cash, and read the product documentation instead.

Weak, very weak
Whilst this book is a good start for a person who knows all but nothing about SQL, it only touches the surface. By no means use this as your only book. If you know a little bit about SQL, then steer clear. Otherwise, use it as a stepping stone, but be prepared to spend more on other titles.
