5.0 out of 5 stars everything you need for successful mysql
im currently studing IT on a degree course and as i had the same book borrowed from the school library, i knew it was written on high standard. even though i borrowed the newer version, i decided to buy this one - price decided it for me, but i can't say there is big difference in these two versions (the newer comes with couple new features built into the newer MySQL, but...

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing for an O'Reilly technical publication
I might as well just have printed off the MySQL on-line documentation, this book really adds little. It's not an introduction for a novice and it doesn't provide real in-depth technical information for the advanced user, it's essentially a language reference. Handy to have lying around, but not what I was hoping for.

5.0 out of 5 stars A most useful book, 12 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This has had extensive use in the last few months, as I have been creating a web site from scratch. It is best used in conjunction with Google, as there are both formal documentation and a lot of examples available there.

There is an error on pages 32 and 33 - the TEXT_FIELDS function mentioned doesn't exist without additional plugins, that are not part of the standard mysql distribution.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Condition, Excellent Book, 16 Oct. 2010
I ordered this book mostly to refer to example SQL code, ranging from basic to complex queries. This book demonstrates and explains each example clearly (with drawn tables). Would definitely recommend it to those who wish to learn SQL. I received this item quickly and was amazed at the condition of the book. The item description warned of minor bookshelf wear but you could almost class the book as brand new. Extremely happy with it and would definitely purchase from the seller again.
