Coming Soon: Pro SQL Server 2008 Mirroring
Pro SQL Server 2008 Mirroring will be the first book dedicated to the subject of database mirroring. Most books only gloss over the topic of database mirroring. Even books that claim to be dedicated to failover clustering and database mirroring only have a few chapters on mirroring. My book will be more comprehensive and delve deeper than any other discussion on the topic so far.
Pro SQL Server 2008 Mirroring has just recently been added to Amazon.com's bookshelves. You should start seeing it for presale on other internet booksellers in the near future and should hit the stores in September.
Since this is my first published book, it's been really interesting for me to see it start showing up on internet booksellers in other countries. So far, Sweden leads the pack with three different internet booksellers showing my book. I even learned something new by searching for my book. I learned about the island country of Niue, a self-governing annex of New Zealand. I've wanted to visit New Zealand for a long time, and if I ever make it, I definitely want to include Niue on the itinerary.
