OK so I’m back from an extended vacation from BenchmarkITConsulting.com and although my vacation had nothing to do with warm weather, beaches, or bacon it was time well spent on finishing up my chapters for the soon to be released Pro Server 2008 Policy-Based Management book.
After going through this process I have a whole new respect for anyone who takes on the challenge of writing a book. It is a long and painful process that will eat up any and all free time that you have but it is probably one of the most rewarding challenges that I’ve taken on and I can’t wait to get my own “AUTHORS COPIES” box in the mail (great post/video BTW Tom)
2 books that are on my “must read” list now that I’m going to have more free time are:
Brent and Tom both have always been great resources to help troubleshoot, bounce ideas off of, and just always willing to lend a hand in anything I’ve sent their way and I’m quite interested to give their books a read and a review. Tom is the technical editor for my book and although he never really explained what he meant by “punch harder” I think/hope I got the idea LOL.
I’ll admit that I haven’t picked up a book since starting this whole co-authoring a book started back in September/09. So I thought these two books would be a great place to start getting back into reading because the authors have both helped shape and guide my SQL path greatly over the last year or two.
So here’s to getting back into reading, blogging more often, and just generally getting back in touch with the world LOL
