Kalen Delaney, a Microsoft MVP for SQL Server since 1993, provides advanced SQL Server training to clients worldwide. She is a contributing editor and columnist for SQL Server Magazine and the author of several highly regarded books, including Inside Microsoft SQL Server 2005: The Storage Engine and Inside Microsoft SQL Server 2005: Query Tuning and Optimization.
"This book was really in-depth and really technical. I feel much smarter after reading it. I have a feeling that in three months or a year, I'll have a problem, and I'll think, "Oh, I read about that somewhere." I'll be able to pull this out and reference it."
--Jes Schultz Borland, Less Than Dot
"Read this book, but also try out all SQL commands. If you don't become a DMV, DBCC and System Table Expert, you will at least be set on the right path to get there. Once again Kalen delivers SQL Depth to be chewed on."
