    soley from looking the table of contents, Viera's books covers the broader subject of what is a database, etc
    while the Turley Wood book focuses on T-SQL, which the SQL plus Sybase/Microsoft extensions

    if you are new to databases or have DBA responsibilities, start with Viera's book
    if you are reasonanly familar with database or are more focus of SQL app dev, go with the Wood/Turley book

    or start with Viera, then go the Wood Turley book

    I personally dont like MS books. They dont provide real-world examples, but only the "MS Way"... which is not always the best way.

    True and Wrox books are far better than MS Press ones (in my Experience).
