We’re writing a book – finally!

Well, almost… Kimberly and I have agreed to co-author the upcoming SQL Server 2008 Internals book with our good friend Kalen Delaney. This is the 2008 evolution of Kalen’s Inside SQL Server series of books and will be published by MS Press around February 2009. The other authors are (also our good friends) Adam Machanic and Conor Cunningham.

Kimberly’s going to write the chapter on Index Internals and I’m going to write the chapter on DBCC Internals. This is very exciting as these are our respective favorite subjects, as you probably already know – these won’t be short chapters :-)

It’s going to be a busy rest of the year – phew!

PS Next year we have plans to write a book ourselves – watch this space…

One thought on “We’re writing a book – finally!

  1. Fantastic news!

    I’ve all of Kalen’s books…which I treat as my Bible set, along with Itik’s and Ken Henderson’s. The last one I was a bit disappointed in, as I like Kalen’s style of writing but found some of her co-authors not to my taste (not the ones you mention BTW).

    I know I like yours and Kimberly’s style, so see it as an excellent fit.

    Can’t wait for the book to come out and hope there may be many more in the future…
