Format: Paperback
While I would love to find a great book on advanced backup and recovery techniques for SQL Server 7, this is not the book. This book is far to general and full of fluff to provide the information you really need. It many ways, the book tries to cover a little of everything about being a SQL Server DBA, but it ends up doing a poor job of covering any topic.
I was hoping to find advanced information on log shipping and clustering. While these topics are touched on, they don't provide you the information you really need.
If you need a book on the basics of SQL Server 7 backup, most any book covering basic SQL Server 7 DBA responsibilities should fit the bill. This book is a waste of your time.

I found this book to be helpful in planning and designing a trustworthy back-up plan. I'm a DBA who is responsible for backing up 6 database servers and I rely heavily on this book. It provides good examples of how to back-up multiple servers and has advice on how to make it work well. If your just looking for info on the BACKUP and RESTORE commands, just use Books Online. BUt if you want to imlpement a full back-up plan for SQL Server in your environment, this is a great resource. Its easy to read and includes many realistic examples. Highly recommended.

I bought this book because of its name. However after I read it, I am very disappointed.
The reason is that
1. It does not not cover in-depth experience/knowledge/troubleshooting. 2. The details of the table are like a plate of salad. So much NT and SQL Server basic stuff most of reader should already know and do not want read it. 3. The most disappointing part is that it does not touch real-world trouble from SQL DBA about backup and restore.

Agree with above comments regarding technical details on log shipping and clustering... But this book really gives what I needed for planning db backups at my company. I wish more technical people would take the time to well plan for backups instead of focusing on implementation which you cvan lookup in Books Online.
