Review

""This book is obviously the product of many years of practical experience with SQL databases. Each topic is covered in great depth, and the attention to detail in the book was beyond my expectations. Although it's not a beginner's book, any developer with a reasonable amount of SQL experience should find it to be a valuable reference and would be hard-pressed not to learn something new.""--Mike Naberezny, Partner at Maintainable Software; Coauthor of "Rails for PHP Developers"

""Bill has written an engaging, useful, important, and unique book. Software developers will certainly benefit from reading the antipatterns and solutions described here. I immediately applied techniques from this book and improved my applications. Fantastic work!""--Frederic Daoud, Author of "Stripes: ...And Java Web Development Is Fun Again" and "Getting Started with Apache Click" --This text refers to the paperback edition.
