Ken Henderson's first two Guru's Guides for Addison-Wesley have been
widely praised by reviewers, and have sold extremely well. He has now written
a key reference to SQL Server which is much broader in scope than either of
the first two, which will appeal to an even larger audience. The Guru's Guide to
SQL Server Architecture is all about the internal pieces of SQL Server, the
architecture of how they fit together, and the effect those have on performance
and tuning issues. Not only will the book cover issues such as the new
Notification Services which have not been covered in any other book, but it
will also go into more detail than any other book on the core SQL Server
technologies. This new book will take its place next to his two previous books
on the shelves of SQL Server developers and administrators everywhere.

Don't let the 1000 pages deter you. Some of the chapters are likely to be considered too in-depth, but the book is loaded with so much info that you're sure to find something that makes it a worthwhile purchase. The material is presented well and the kiddy stuff is skipped so you're not wasting time flipping through material you've known for the last few years. I like the inclusion of the MS Debugger. The examples in the book have given me an introduction to it, and in time I expect that it will come in handy. In my years of reading SQL Server books, few have been as comprehensive as this one. It goes somewhat beyond Inside SQL Server, though I have not purchased that book since SQL 7. This is the type of book from which certification questions should be derived. It describes the nuances in using SQL Server and I've enjoyed reading several chapters of this book highlighting along the way. I consider it a better reference than SQL Server 2000 Resource Kit, and my only...
This is one of the books that I am reading now! I have been involved in software(web-based) projects range from $20,000 to $7,000,000 over the course of my career. This is the book that will help you "put the food on the table" if you are going to survive in competitive IT industries. For those people giving 1-3 stars rating must know more than Ken Henderson who works for Microsoft for more than ten years.
The first 400 pages of this book give you internal of the Window Operating system which will help many of you to use the system resource wisely and write better SQL code. The author is very knowledge about what Window OS and SQL server. It is a great book to have and put on your bookshelf for reference.
Ken Henderson is the premier author of SQL Server and has created his best work yet of his series "Gurus Guide.." with this book. This book digs in to the nuts and bolts of SQL Server like no other author has to date. I have had the honor of meeting him on a few occasions and listenting to two of his presentations - each time I run back to apply my newly acquired skills. We are lucky to have a great programmer, thinker, SQL Server wiz continuously exploring the application so that we might be better dba's and programmers ourselves. Thanks again, Ken Lee
