Books on SQL Server Stored Procedure

I aware that there are many books written on SQL Server 2000 SP, but I can't find any book on SQL Server 2008 SP. Can anybody give the names of such books.

The best TSQL books for 2008 are Itzik Ben Gan's "Inside TSQL Querying" and "T-SQL Fundamentals." Both books are completely focused on 2008. You may also want to take a look at Joe Sack's "Trans-SQL Recipes." It's an excellent problem/solution approach to showing you how to do all sorts of T-SQL querying.

After that you'll start to see books like mine, "Query Performance Tuning Distilled." One book I recommend to everyone, just because it covers so much information, is SQL Server MVP Deep Dives. It's written by a whole slew of SQL Server MVP's and has information almost every SQL Server professional can use.

The reason you can't find one is that there isn't sufficient difference for it to warrant a book. You're better off finding a book that covers SQL Server 2008 T-SQL in general, because wrapping that SQL in a stored procedure is just a tiny part of what you might want to know.

New code box

There's a new way to format code on the site - the red speech bubble logo will automatically format T-SQL for you. The original code box is still there for XML, etc. More details here.
