+1 on this being an excellent book.  I learned a lot about SB from Klaus before loaning this to another SQL DBA that was having problems getting into SB.

It's ironic that because SMSS is based on the Visual Studio shell, you can actually build SMSS addins in a similar way to regular VS addins. But as my friend (and former colleague) Ben Laan found out when he created his SQL Formatter - , it isn't that well documented.

If SMSS adopts the new WPF-based shell, that may help things along a bit too as far as lowering the bar to creating new addins/extensions.

I too am enjoying this book.

The section on Transaction Management is very helpful, let down only by the fact that there was little guidance on how to handle the unclosed conversations when using set processing. The conversations need to be ended at both the initiator and target.

In all, a well written,informative and greatly detailed book. Highly recommended. Tony S.
