Microsoft SQL Server 2000 DBA Survival Guide Second Edition (Book)

May 2004

"The real world" is where the book "Microsoft SQL Server 2000 DBA Survival Guide," 2nd. edition, says it's coming from. The claim is based on the editorial commitment to offer practical advice and solutions for the most common challenges that SQL Server can throw the database administrator. As a result, the book has the courage to point out the areas in which Microsoft Corp. could "extend the functionality." But the aim isn't to knock but to help: the book is very generous with tips and hints, and one definitely gets the feeling that they're in the company of hands-on practitioners who have a few war stories to tell, not just documentation writers going mad.
