This review is from: High Performance MySQL: Optimization, Backups, Replication, and More (Paperback)
I have been developing with MySQL for a few years, albeit as a periphery to my PHP activities and limited to the usual few suspects of INSERT, SELECT and UPDATE along with PhpMyAdmin and occasionally the command line tools.
But I reached the stage that queries on large databases were getting awfully slow and damaging my credibility. I needed a way to find speed on relatively low end (or old high end) servers.
In the first 30 pages alone this book has opened up my eyes to a vast range of possibilities and expanded my lack of knowledge incredibly - so much so I can actually talk sense on the subject if asked!
This looks to be an incredible book, and browsing through the 600 odd pages I can see a whole range of topics and areas that I really should know a lot more about and will enhance my ability to scale tremendously.
Not sure now how I managed to do without it.
