SQL Server Tacklebox

  • I like the cover photo. I'll let you know more once I've done some reading.

  • This is a book above my current experience level. That doesn't mean it isn't useful to me.

    I'm starting chapter 3 of the book now. So far: I've learned new ways to install SQL Server. I have a better understanding of the importance of seperate drives for the data & logs. Most importantly I've learned the importance of DOCUMENTATION.

    I've been able to compare what I got from Forta's T-SQL in 10 to the scripts provided in the book and follow them. Do you remember when SQL, or any form of programming, was new to you and how great you felt when you were able to read somebody's code and understand it? Yeah, that rocks.

    I have liked being able to take the scripts from the book and run them against my install of SQL Server 2008 Express and see the results.

  • Has anyone managed to download the ePub version? The link given (ftp://www.simple-talk.com/simplepod/SQLServerTacklebox.epub) seems to be broken.

  • I will reach out to the editors at simple-talk and let them know.


  • I'm not sure why it's showing up as an FTP link. Sorry about that - I'll fix it.Try: http://www.simple-talk.com/simplepod/SQLServerTacklebox.epub

  • Thanks Tony.

  • The link to the .pdf file is also failing, with a timeout message.

  • Bump.

  • I can grab the PDF no problem. It redirects from here to the simple-talk site but from there I can click the PDF and have it download immediately.


  • Likewise, I cannot replicate the problem.

    If you drop a mail to "editor at simple-talk dot com" (substitute and remove spaces, appropriately) , I'll reply and attach the PDF (Size: 7 MB)



  • Hmmm. Good to know. I'm accessing it from work, but will try from home later today. Thanks for the confirmation.
