We’ve had some more great reviews on our books and we’re so proud of them we thought that we would share them with you all! Some could say it is us showing off a little, but please forgive us this little indulgence – it’s like when you worked really hard on your homework and your teacher gave you a gold start so you ran home to your parents showing it off! Oh the excitement!

What’s New in SQL Server 2012 – Thorsten Kansy

I was requested by my employer to familiarize myself with the updates found in SQL Server 2012, I did not relish doing this. Thankfully I found this book – it meant that I didn’t have to read books which were 500 pages in length to get to know the most relevant updates. Written in a professional manner, which I read in an afternoon – this book was a lifesaver!
