If you're like me and have been wanting to learn how to use MySQL you've probably looked at all of the other books, including the MySQL documentation website. And if you're like me it's probably confused the heck out of you with trying to figure out where to go next. This book solves that problem. It breaks it down into easy manageable steps on how what it is, how to use it, and when to use it as well as a bunch of other good stuff. It's easy to read, easy to understand and is a handy reference ...more

Simplest to read computer book I've ever laid hands on. Actually good for easy reference.

It's entirely possible that much of my enthusiasm for this book derives from the simple experience of using MySQL, which is powerful and astonishingly simple to learn. Having said that, I still feel that this book is an excellent introduction to the subject. The pace is quick without leaving out important information, and the examples are all helpful. Reference information is also included in a convenient format.

Exceedingly useful for introduction of methods and as reference for general questions. I'd call it essential reading to jumpstart using MySQL and a solid investment. The author takes on a no-nonsense approach to the subject with impressive economy and clarity of writing. Not an exhaustive look at MySQL by any means, but a strong primer on learning and using the platform. Highly recommended.
