Expert Performance Indexing for SQL Server 2012 is a deep dive into perhaps the single-most important facet of good performance: indices, and how to best use them. The book begins in the shallow waters with explanations of the types of indices and how they are stored in databases. Moving deeper into the topic, and further into the book, you will look at the statistics that are accumulated both by indices and on indices.
