Readable for complete beginners,
This review is from: Sams Teach Yourself SQL in 10 Minutes (Paperback)
I read this book without ever having read a book on programming/coding or having attempted to learn it.
It gives a nice simple step by step guide to the basics of SQL. Each step is always backed up by examples, so it's easy to understand what the author is talking about.
I quickly realised that just reading it isn't really going to help you learn, you really have to try out the examples yourself (I first read this on a long train journey, so unfortunately couldn't!).
I don't get why it is has the '...in 10 minutes' part of its name, but other than that it's a decent introduction for beginners like myself.
