  2. Benjamin — I just read your SQL Server optimization e-book. It’s a great book. Thank you for writing it. Your book uses R8. I currently have R12 and soon will have R16. But your explanation is so thorough that it largely transcends SQL Server releases. I already knew a lot about optimization but learned some more from your well-written book.
