Disappointing, but still a useful book
on 19 July 2001
I had hoped that this would be a concise but complete reference on building SQL statements, but it lacks some of the most basic explanations (try looking up UNION queries in the index - it's not there!!!). Disappointing, considering the many other 'In A Nutshell' series books I have are indespensible. This one reads more like a 'white paper' than a user reference book. Expensive too, considering how thin it is.
