    Does anyone know of any good Audio books for SQL Server Admins?

    I love being able to listen to material during my sometimes lengthy commute but I cannot seem to find anything on SQL Server out there.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    Don't know any audio books, but the RunAsRadio podcast sometimes has SQL Server topics (and often has interesting non-SQL topics) and, to a much lesser extent, does DotNetRocks. http://dotnetrocks.com and http://runasradio.com

    Audio+video, there's the SQLBits session downloads, you can usually get a good overview with just the audio if you're driving. http://www.sqlbits.com/

    They're what I use when driving, shopping or standing in queues.

    Thanks for the information. I'm really sad there are not more SQL resources on audio, I'm finding it to be a great learning resource for me and I cannot believe it took me so long to discover it.

    I use presentation recordings (SQL Bits, Pass Summit and others) and just listen to the audio portions. It's often quite enough to understand
