SQL Backup and Recovery

I was very fortunate to have the opportunity to write a book for Joes2Pros on a topic that is very important to me. As database professionals, few things are more important than being able to properly backup and recover our data.

I had put together a presentation for user groups and SQL Saturday’s titled “Know Backups, Know Recovery”. It was during my presentation in New York City at SQL Saturday 158 that Rick Morelan heard me speak and told me he thought my session would make a great book. Over the next few weeks we shared a few emails and on September 14th we officially began the work. Several weeks later on October 31st, my book “SQL Backup and Recovery” went live on Amazon for the low price of $9.99.

I am very excited to have finally written a book, but more importantly to be able to share my experiences and help others through their journey to becoming a database professional. I wouldn’t be where I am today without the support of my family, that includes my SQL family as well. You all have been amazing to me and I love being able to pay it forward. So continue your support and go out and buy my book. 🙂

I will be having a book signing Wednesday night at the Idera Happy Hour at Fox Sports Grill and another book signing on Friday at the Joes2Pros booth during the second hour of lunch. If you are going to be at the PASS Summit, come see me.
