One of my professional activities that I am most proud of is my involvement in the SQL Server MVP Deep Dives books, Volumes One and Two. Over 50 MVPs each wrote a chapter on a topic that they were excited about, and all the royalties were donated to charity. We have been able to send tens of thousands of dollars to War Child and Operation Smile.
This is no ordinary SQL Server book. In SQL Server MVP Deep Dives, the world's leading experts and practitioners offer a masterful collection of techniques and best practices for SQL Server development and administration. 53 MVPs each pick an area of passionate interest to them and then share their insights and practical know-how with you.
