I have been using MySQL databases for a long time but the level of effort I'd previously put into the design and performance was low compared to the effort put into the applications using them. My initial concern with this book was it may have been too technical for me to make practical use of.

While some parts do require a number of visits before they 'sink in' and make sense, I have to say this book is ideal for sorting both the silly 'start up' database designer problems as well as being a potentially good reference for the more established database user. I say 'potentially' as I'm not an 'established database designer' so can only assume the books usefulness for such a person.

I have not completed the entire book, after all I see it as reference work, but what I have read has changed my view that making even the most basic database more efficient doesn't necessarily require massive effort.

Have been using mysql for a while, needed to brush up my skills and purchased this book. Enjoyed reading it, made some book marks and have been dipping into and out of the book.

Already been able to make some measured inprovements to systems we are running.
