Many excellent books about T-SQL are available, so how is this one different? In talking to the many
people I meet in my travels around the country, I have heard one common complaint. Instead of the host of
wonderful books available to expert database administrators (DBAs), most SQL Server readers yearn for
a book targeted toward the beginning-to-intermediate DBA or developer. They want a book that starts at
the beginning, ensures that they have no gaps in their knowledge, and takes them through some of the more
advanced aspects of SQL Server. Along the way, they want to acquire volumes of practical knowledge
that they can easily port into their own applications. I wrote Sams Teach Yourself T-SQL in One Hour a
Day with those requests in mind.
