Apress Logo

April 1, 2015 – I am delighted to take part in the April Fool’s Promotion by Publisher Apress, who are featuring some of their new upcoming collection of terrific technical books for 40% off all eBooks through 4/15/2015.  You should take advantage of this exclusive limited time offer, because, you’d be a FOOL, not to!  This is a great promotion going on, and Apress puts out some awesome technical books! Go here: Apress April Fools, to learn more about the promotion, and order and pre-order your favorite books now!

This blog is not just another SQLCommunity service pro marketing tip – No, because I am absolutely, positively (still amazed myself) to officially announce the impending, upcoming and yes, featured book on the awesome April Apress collection of print and e-books available for pre-order, my authorship of the one and only Healthy SQL!

You’ve seen the presentation, you’ve seen the blog, and I’ve been discussing the launch of the international Healthy SQL campaign – and now, the BOOK!  I won’t give it all away (well if you are attending the NYC SQLSaturday #380, on May 30, 2015, I will be, but I digress); so if you are looking for [NOT] another performance tuning book, but a Comprehensive Guide to Healthy SQL Server Performance, then this is the must-have DBA book for you!

Whether you are a senior DBA, mid-level DBA, junior DBA, accidental DBA, DBA consultant, or someone who manages a SQL Server environment, this book will organize your DBA day and help you excel in your DBA career.  My book (wow that sounds nice) talks all about what a health check is and helps you put in place a rigorous routine to monitor, manage and report on the continous performance health of your SQL Server database(s).

Healthy SQL is about ensuring the ongoing performance health of a SQL Server database. An unhealthy database is not just an inconvenience; it can bring a business to its knees. And if you are the database administrator, the health of your SQL Server implementation can be a direct reflection on you. It's in everyone's best interest to have a healthy SQL implementation. Healthy SQL is built around the concept of a medical health checkup, giving you the tools you need to assess the current health of your database and take action to improve upon that health and maintain good performance to your business. We discuss best practices, and preventative medicine.

You can learn more about HealthySQL and how you can pre-order your copy now directly from Apress: Order HealthySQL Now!  No, indeed, this is not a joke – I ain’t fooling you.  I’m very proud to share my knowledge and experiences with you, but it’s not out yet – so knock on wood, and reserve your copy today!  I guarantee that with HealthySQL on your shelf, or kindle, will make you feel great!

Happy April Fools!
