Fantastic. Must buy for serious database professional.

This book MUST be on the shelf of anyone seriously using SQL Server. It has information not found anywhere else, and the author immediately establishes his credibility. The chapters on locking, cursors, architecture, and performance tuning provide information that is invaluable for developing high performance apps, and that information cannot be found anywhere in the rather mediocre documentation of the product itself, nor in the knowledgebase at microsoft.com. This book is not for the novice. I note there was one bad review here of the book - by someone who had difficulty installing SQL Server. This book is not for him for sure - and Soukup is pretty clear on that. In fact, that chapter is not at all about "Installing", but rather just planning for the right hardware and baseline configuration to go with. It has a great discussion of RAID configurations, and I realized that I had been running a suboptimal RAID-5 system (as my Proliant came configured). After a long weekend, I reconfigured everything in lines with the guidelines in this book, and saw an immediate, significant improvement.
I hope this book will be revisised quickly when version 7 ships !
Thank you Mr Soukup for this great work.
