SQL Server - MVP Deep Dives

I got my copy of MVP deep dives earlier this month and have been making good progress in reading some of the chapters. Its not a start to finish book and by that I mean you can really read any chapter in any order you like. Me being me, I started somewhere toward the back. These are some of the Chapters that I have read thus far:

47 - How to use Dynamic Management Views
Glenn Berry

43 - How to optimize tempdb performance
Brad M. McGehee

39 Running SQL Server on Hyper-V
John Paul Cook

45 - Correlating SQL Profiler with PerfMon
Kevin Kline

I intend to read this chapter soon, as I would like to learn more about power shell

26 Power Shell in SQL Server
Richard Siddaway

The authors profit’s from this book go to a charity called War Child which is a very worth while cause. The book has 53 authors and 6 technical editors all with MVP status, and include names like Paul Randal, Adam Mechanic, Kimberly Tripp, Gail Shaw, Paul Nielsen and Itzak Ben-Gan to name just a few, which basically means some of the most authoritative people in the SQL Server Community have come together to produce this work, and in my humble opinion is a must have for any SQL Server professional.
