Do you want to learn Synapse Data Explorer and do you want to read only one book about it? Then you should read the book by Pericles (Peri) Rocha (Li) - Learn Synapse Data Explorer.

You’ll find a packed book with a huge amount of new stuff and learning. The book’s content:

The book covers the entire environment around Synapse Data Explorer - from a brief introduction to the application and an overview of the approach to the platform; through the internals of the engine; to a very geeky deepdive into the KQL commands and the advanced data management.

I’ve read all around 300 pages - and I found it to be a great source for learning and is also usable as a book to have to look up specific topics around Synapse Data Explorer.
