Hello all.


  I run a small computer shop and am finding myself working on more SQL servers lately.  Is there a good book anyone can reccomend to help me with database backup, security and good practices?  I am up for a book that teaches SQL as well as the other stuff, but mainly interested in safe backup protocols and procedures.

I have no wish whatsoever to insult you, but - if you are starting from a very low knowledge base - I have always found either 'The Idiot's guide to . . .' or '. . . for Dummies' a very good starting point. Clear, well written, no hidden assumptions and a welcome dash of humour.


However, if you are in fact looking for something more advanced, then typing 'An idiot's guide to SQL' into Google of brings up quite an array of alternatives.
