RBAR is pronounced ree-bar and is a Modenism for Row-By-Agonizing-Row.
First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code:
Stop thinking about what you want to do to a row... think, instead, of what you want to do to a column.
If you think its expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur. -- Red Adair

Not only is the book great, but all of his videos on the subject on http://www.sqlshare.com are also must sees as well. He is one of the best speakers on the site bar none BTW, you can download the e-book PDF version for free too. Smile Travis.

I have the book on my desk. I also have had the pleasure of speaking with Grant and hearing him speak at the New England SQL Server User Group and a SQL Code Camp. He also has anothe book out which is equally good. SQL Server 2008 Query Performance Tuning Distilled.

Nice review and you really did a great job of identifying the value of the book.

I've read that one cover to cover, as well. As you say, it's equally as good.

Thanks for your comment on the review, Robert.

Nice review, thanks for the info Jeff.


You bet, Jason. Thanks for the feedback. Grant is an easy read... I read his book in just two nights. Heh... if you want a primer in XML, that's in there, too!

Hey Jeff,

Thanks for the great review and the kind words. "I'm not worthy" doesn't begin to cover it, but thanks for the sentiments.
