There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
However, there were a few typos that caused confusion.
Company got in contact and corrected the errors that I found.
Since I started reading this book I haven't stopped, the author made and excellent job writing it, as it's easy to read and very interesting.
This was a great investment and I would recommend this book to anyone who would like to start learning SQL.
In return for a review, I Was offered the ebook for download. I was able to download the book without difficulty to both my Macintosh computer and to my Kindle Fire. A direct download to my Paperwhite Kindle was apparently successful, but the device could not open the downloaded file. I was able, however, to transfer the book from my computer to either Kindle without difficulty.
Although the text was attractive in the Paperwhite Kindle, the tables were so tiny that a magnifying glass was necessary to read them. The Kindle Fire allowed me to magnify the tables, as did my computer. The ebook is substantially cheaper than either the paperback or the hardback, but the book needs to be read on a device that allows zooming in on the tables.
I had no difficulty downloading the sTunes Database and the DB Browser for SQLite from the publisher's website. Both are necessary to use the book effectively.
The author's English is informal, fluent, and articulate. The book does not read like a technical manual. He was careful to define technical terms as they occurred and provided a glossary at the back of the book. There is a detailed Table of Contents. The ebook did not include an index, since the digital text could be searched directly. I do not know if there is an index in the paperback and hardback editions.
The results of SQL queries were shown in the earlier chapters, but less often in the later ones, after the reader had become accustomed to the SQLite browser.
It is difficult to rid a technical book entirely of misprints, and there are a few in the "SQL QuickStart Guide." The only one that impeded my progress was an error in figure 65, where the primary key for invoice_items, "InvoiceLineId", was printed as "InvoiceItemId". The publisher is in the process of setting up, on their website, an "Errata" page for this and other technical manuals.
There are two appendices. The first provides solutions to the Data Analysis questions asked at the ends of the technical chapters. The questions were not difficult, but the answers were welcome. The second appendix summarizes the keywords introduced in chapters 4 through 10. An expansion of this appendix would be helpful.
In addition to the technical information in Chapters 3 through 10, the author provides information about himself, SQL, and careers in data access and analysis.
To summarize, I was able to work my way through the book in two weeks, so it did an excellent job of providing a beginner with a working knowledge of SQL. I look forward to trying out my new skills on another database.
