This book is focused on SQL Server administration for Microsoft SQL Server 7. It isn't
an introductory book but covers more intermediate and advanced topics. The book jacket says "Users new to SQL Server administration will find that this book's real-world
approach makes their experience infinitely easier. The authors point out typical
pitfalls and how to avoid them. For experienced administrators, the in-depth
treatment of new features will make the transition to SQL Server 7 much less
painful then it might otherwise be, given that items as fundamental as a
"device" are no longer part of SQL Server"
