I found myself having to use MySQL to backend a C-based project I was doing, but I'd not seen MySQL before. Used this book along with the online manual and had the application working great (with replication!) in about three days. Just added a web-based PHP front end too. All this is documented in this book, very clear and easy to follow. Problems? - if you don't know SQL, get a SQL reference as well, and the book is a bit out of date, which is normal with computer software books. Oh, and it's a bit on the pricy side.. Summary: in my opinion this book is as definitive on MySQL as K&R is/was on the C language. Get it!

This book is one of the most complete book on MySQL. I wish I had it earlier before buying O'Reilly's mSQL/MySQL. Although O'Reilly's is good (with quite a lot of errata) overview of mSQL and MySQL, this book covers MySQL in more details, down to some scripts/tips that you can use while writing your SQL statements. Optimizing your query is also mentioned, plus interfacing MySQL with C, Perl and Php (why no Java?).
If you want a good book on MySQL, this is the one.

Having embarked up on a large project for my Company, utilising both PHP and MySQL I found this book a godsend.
You need to have some experience of programming but the book is laid out so concisely and precisely that you will find that even seemingly complex theories and procedures become simple.
As well as PHP there are excellent chapters on how to access MySQL from both C and Perl, using the DBI

Paul, I would truely like to congratulate you on such complete and comprehensive coverage of MySQL. For people who don't know Paul is a frequent contributor to both the support mail list and the development of MySQL. Paul's book is suitable to all skill levels and is written in a style that can be understood by all. I highly recommend Paul's to anybody interested in using and/or programming MySQL
