This is no ordinary book. Paul Nielsen took up Bill Gates' challenge at a recent MVP summit to do something notable to give back to the community. He organised a large group of SQL Server MVPs to create a unique book and worked with Manning to get it published. The money made on the book was to go directly to a charity and the charity chosen was WarChild.
I had the privilege (along with Kalen Delaney, Adam Machanic, Kimberley Tripp and Paul Randall) to be one of the editors on this book but the magic contribution has come from the 53 SQL Server MVPs involved with the book.
The book will be launched at the US PASS Summit on Thursday next week. I can't wait for it to be out and I'm really looking forward to seeing so many of the MVPs at that launch event. I know that many of you like to get your books signed by the authors. Buying a copy of the book at the summit is your best chance of having it signed by as many of the MVPs that wrote it as possible. Don't miss this chance.
