It's good, and could have been better!

This is a handy little textbook that serves as a reminder when one is working with MySQL Databases. My only problem is the scanty index provided for it. Sure it's meant to tiny but a few more pages to accommodate a more useful index would not hurt portability since it's barely 132 pages. For some of the most important MySQL commands the only way to find them them is to flip through the book since they do not apear on the table of contents either partially defeating the purpose which is to access MySQL statements quickly.
However due to the small size, the book still offers fast access to commonly used statements, and can help accelerate development by placing commonly used statements at one's fingertips. Despite being very small the Author offers brief explainations of data types, how to add users, etc. It has a page on mysql command-line utility. So all in all, a very useful book.
