The books content is good. The text and spacing is excellent, the examples are clear and concise. The explanations of the examples are simple to understand and allows you to learn sql.

However, to learn Sql, I would like a book to show me the table sets that I will work with. Create and insert data to those tables, then begin learning sql manipulation of those tables.

With this book I spent more time creating, inserting and dropping tables than I did learning sql.

It was more typing and less learning.

If this book had a fixed set of tables, and then the sql examples it would be an excellent beginners guide.

I would like a book to first have the intro, who the book is for, conventions, what a database, column, row primary/foreign key and so forth.

Second, sql statements and explanations to show you how to create tables, insert data. The created tables to be the tables used throughout the book. No exceptions. This allows the reader to become familiar with the tables and data and write additional queries based on their learning.

Then third show you how to retrieve and manipulate data, showing different ways to do the same action allowing the learner to choose their own style. Distinct chapters per new sql keywords.

Very easy to read for the beginner like me implementing a database for my own e-commerce site, do not be put off by the glossy pictures in comic book fashion, the facts are there and the style or writing by this author is very understandable.

I bought this book from BookAxis and found their service spot on. Delivery was early and arrived in perfect condition. The title of the book could be a bit misleading as SQL and MySQL are somewhat different to each other. It may have been better to give this book it's correct title of MySQL. Withstanding that the book is very informative and there are instructions on how to download and install the MySQL database server. I am new to this but am plodding through the book whenever I get the chance.
