SQL Server Hardware Book News and Reviews

Today was an exciting day, since I discovered that fellow SQL Server MVP Brent Ozar (Blog|Twitter) had posted a very nice review of my book SQL Server Hardware.

That means a lot to me, since I respect Brent, both as a person and as a technical expert (he is a Microsoft Certified Master in SQL Server 2008, after all). Brent typically does not pull any punches in his reviews, so the fact that he liked the book was a pretty big deal, IMHO…  Thanks Brent!

I also found out that SQL Server Hardware will be also available on the Kindle by August 8, 2011. I am very happy about this, since I think it just makes good sense to have technical books on a Kindle so that you can have them with you any time you need them. Plus, I was getting a lot of questions about when a Kindle version would be available!

Finally, I have been talking to Softpro Books in Centennial, CO about getting all of the Red Gate SQL Server books available in the store, and it looks like this may happen pretty soon.

    You did a great job on the book, man! You should be really proud of yourself. Nice work!

    (And I’m not just saying that because you said nice stuff about me, heh.)

    Glad to here there will be a Kindle version. SQL Books tend to be big and heavy – and take up a lot of shelf space. I also have a load of slips of paper sticking out of them to point to various pages – and a kindle can do all that for me.

  3. FYI, the Kindle version is now available. I picked it up this morning. Time to pick up where I left off, and pick a lucky recipient of my hard-copy!
