"Learning SQL is the perfect starting place for anyone new to the lingua franca of databases, the Structured Query Language. You will appreciate the easy reading format and clear, effective examples that bring SQL to life. The coverage is just right for beginners and those with intermediate computer skills. All of the important topics are covered in easily digested chapters with just the right balance of simplicity and complexity. Early chapters teach you the basics of SQL quickly, while later chapters dive deeper into more sophisticated techniques, all the while retaining the book's conversational tone and thorough coverage of each topic. If you're looking for a good introductory to intermediate SQL book, then you should definitely add Learning SQL to your library."

" interesting and reader-friendly book on SQL that presents a lot of topics in a summarized and direct way. The explanations are clear and are illustrated through examples based on a specific bank database schema used in the book...This book would be particularly relevant for anyone who needs to brush up on his or her knowledge of SQL, or start learning the language."
