As someone two has learned a large number of programming, scripting, and formatting languages, I feel well-positioned to say that SQL is a challenging language to fully master. After finally figuring out that I wasn't going to be able to wing it anymore, I read some reviews and got this book. I finally learned the right way to build databases for use with SQL. In the last eight years, it has repeatedly come off the shelf to solve my problems.

I learned a lot about SQL from reading this book. It was a good reference back in 1994 when I bought it. I'm giving it only three stars now because it is so out of date - if it were the current edition I'd rate it higher.

This is a good introduction to writing SQL for database systems.
