Technology applications are typically dull and dry. But the author has done a great job of making SQL easily accessible. The practical applications are interesting and easy to follow. In a short amount of time, this book will help a novice see the big picture of SQL and help a beginner learner to effectively use SQL. ( )

I'm slightly above beginner level when it comes to SQL. I can build queries from scratch for most problems I'm trying to solve. But, for someone at my level, this book is an invaluable resource. I use it as a starting point to figure out why my query isn't working. That knowledge then allows me to go to another SQL reference or to Stack Overflow.

I highly recommend this book. ( )

Excellent book. I actually know SQL and have a great deal of experience with it (18 years). So, I'm very qualified to review this book. I haven't worked with SQL, though, in two years. Which is why I wanted this book. A refresher. Plus, I think even the experienced can learn something from someone who has written about a topic exceedingly well. I did learn a great deal. The author writes in a way that is lacking from nearly every technical book on the market. His explanations, style of writing, everything, are fantastic. I only wished he wrote all the technical books I needed to read or want to own! Fantastic guide to have on hand. I have it on my computer and on my phone so that I'm never without out. ( )

I haven't read this book because I requested it to use for reference when I need to use SQL on a project. I have some SQL experience so it appears it might have been useful but the tablet I downloaded it to died and I had to buy a new one, and download link no longer works.

I came to this book with no SQL experience, and very little database experience at all--but I have moderate experience with HTML, Excel, and a little tiny bit of programming. The guide is very well organized and easy to get into, from the beginning (how to get started with a free version of a SQL program) and forward through clear exercises of increasing complexity. Highly recommended to anyone interested in getting their feet wet in SQL! ( )
