The best thing about working with SQL Server is working with the other people that use it. The SQL server experts who do most for their colleagues in the community are recognised as MVPs, so not only do they know their stuff they are willing to share their knowledge.
Of course you could argue that all this furthers their careers and/or businesses and while this might be true up to a point I would counter this by suggesting that you buy SQL Server MVP Deep Dives
For two simple reasons, it’s an excellent example of what MVP’s are capable of producing, and because they have donated all their royalties to the WarChild Charity
