No one book can be perfect for everyone's needs, but this comes close. Clearly laid out (great use of colour), concise, very readable writing style, covers many topics - other writers could learn a lot from Ben Forta!
I had a good but rusty knowledge of database design, but limited knowledge of SQL. I found this book excellent in explaining SQL and, because of its concise and clear layout, it's ideal as a quick reference book.
There are some topics where you'll want to get more detail or background, so I also bought SQL Queries for Mere Mortals. However, I wouldn't be without Teach Yourself SQL in 10 Minutes. Highly recommended.
