"A solid introduction to administering SQL 2005. The 'DBA 101' sections provide useful tips for the new DBA, good review for the experienced DBA, and the 101 label enables the seasoned DBA to skip basic material and jump ahead to where the REAL action is…. Buck's conversational writing style makes this an enjoyable and refreshing contrast to the majority of tech books written these days."
