Reader comments
A review published in the ISUG Journal can be read here. In addition, these are some comments by readers who own the "The Complete Sybase IQ Quick Reference Guide":

" Prior to The Complete Sybase IQ Quick Reference Guide, all we had for Sybase IQ knowledge were nearly 4,000 pages of manuals hiding various parts of sought-after facts among scattered pieces of information.Rob has distilled the key IQ information down to 144 pages, and added to this knowledge by gluing bits of published text and sometimes undocumented facts into a complete picture of the topic under review. Without Rob's compact and inclusive guide, you would have no doubt gone through endless trials to arrive at his expert-level knowledge of the subject.
Rob's guide matches the quality we've all seen first-hand in his other two guides for the Sybase Replication Server and Sybase ASE. The Complete Sybase IQ Quick Reference Guide is sure to be re-read many times, particularly when a seemingly impossible or puzzling task confronts you. This book is told just right in my opinion. "

Mark Gearhart

" The IQ quick reference guide is the first truly useful IQ book I found. It is of the same high level as Rob's guides on ASE and Replication Server "

Onno van der Linden

" Rob combines his keen style of delivery with his technical arsenal of Sybase IQ knowledge to provide DBA’s exactly what they need to know while leaving out what they don’t. The result is a fantastic and priceless resource for both the Sybase IQ administrator and developer alike. I would recommend everyone add a "little pink" to their library shelf! "
