Over and over again, I get asked which DBA books I recommend. With this in mind, this month’s qustion is “What’s your favorite DBA book, and why?” Share with us your favorite book titles, authors, and why you like them. You can list more than one favorite book if you like.
Post your responses to the SQL Server Question of the Month in the comments section below (at www.bradmcgehee.com if you are viewing this from a syndicated newsfeed). And don’t forget to enter your e-mail address when you post your response, so I can contact you if you win.
Because there is no right or wrong answer, this month’s winner will be selected randomly from all the entries that are received.
This Month’s Prizes
|The prizes this month are an Amazon.com voucher worth US $50.00 and a license for new SQL Backup Pro 7 (to be released in April) with one year of support and upgrades.
