Christmas Is Coming Early This Year

Note from my manager:


It looks like we have some book money left for this year that we can spend.
Please select 2 books each that you have wanted and send the titles to me and I’ll get them on the list."

Very nice, I picked the following two books below.
The Art of SQL
SQL Server 2005 Practical Troubleshooting: The Database Engine

What would you have picked?

They would have to be programming related.

BTW I forwarded the shooting one to a co-worker since he is into that kind of stuff  ;-)

About Denis Gobo

I was born in Croatia in 1970, when I was one I moved to Amsterdam (and yes Ajax is THE team in Holland) and finally in 1993 I came to the US. I have lived in New York City for a bunch of years and currently live in Princeton, New Jersey with my wife and 3 kids. I work for Dow Jones as a Database architect in the indexes department, one drawback: since our data goes back all the way to May 1896 I cannot use smalldates ;-( I have been working with SQL server since version 6.5 and compared to all the other bloggers here I am a n00b. Some of you might know me from or even from some of the newsgroups where I go by the name Denis the SQL Menace If you are a Tek-Tips user then you might know me by the name SQLDenis, I am one of the guys answering SQL Questions in the SQL Programming forum.
