I needed to get some pretty simple work done in SQL (at least I thought so) and having very little experience with SQL I was looking for a book that could go from nothing to where I needed to be.
Other books I had tried before this one either expected a level of knowledge I did not have or were not easy to navigate to just the portions I needed.
I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for an easy to follow reference covering all aspects of SQL to some level and imagine even someone with experience of SQL could take something away from it.

The only thing preventing me giving this 5 stars is not having read (or found) and other comparable 'getting started' type books on SQL 2008.

This is a great book. It provides sufficient instructions to allow you to build SQL server applications. I had almost no knowledge of SQL before I started reading it. I have only read half way through and I can already create SQL queries I thought I'd never be able to understand.
The instructions are very easy to follow. My colleagues who are experienced SQL server professionals find this book very useful as well.

This is a excellent book. It starts with the basics and leads the reader into learning the more complex parts of SQL Server. I would definately recommend this book for beginner to intermediate SQL Server users.

Good product, really good for the basics and getting started with SQL. With little training this book has been great learning the data extract, upload and report server reporting.

Loads of errors in the examples across many chapters which cause problems in later chapters, better than the official exam text which as a learning tool for the skillset is a waste of time. Having read and learned how to program using O'Reilly's books for PERL and Pragmatic Programmers Ruby series, this book is rubbish.
