Book contrasting Oracle and MS SQLServer?

I am an oracle savvy developer looking to switch to SS. Know of any
good books that compare/contrast the two?
Thanks

If you've decided to switch then why compare?
From the SQL development perspective take a look at O'Reilly's "SQL in

a Nutshell" (Kline and Kline).

Also take a look at these resources:

Whenever possible please post enough code to reproduce your problem.
Including CREATE TABLE and INSERT statements usually helps.
State what version of SQL Server you are using and specify the content
of any error messages.
