The folks at http://sqlperspectives.wordpress.com are reviewing the SQL Server Deep Dives book a chapter at a time (one chapter per week). The review is usually done by more than one person, so far there are already 8 chapters reviewed. I think that this is a very cool idea, it is almost like a book club.
