Good book to learn the Basics.
This book is what it says it is. Very good book on how to learn SQL basics!! When you have completed this book, you will be able to do most of the queries that you need for your job. It is not written to teach you the complex parts of SQL, but it does touch these. I recommend this book to anyone that needs to learn SQL for reports or programming.

Quick and Dirty, as it Implies
I generally don't write reviews of products unless they are fantastic or absolutely horrible. This is FANTASTIC.
If you have programming experience and some familiarity with MS Access, this is a great book for you. I was able to go through the entire thing in 8 hours, take notes and import 3500 records from an old database into a new one with much greater ease.
-It differentiates between SQL Server, Oracle and the SQL specification on several examples.
-An introduction to advanced features is given in the last few chapters with examples.
-Small book allows quick scanning
-Not very visual. Organization of information and the layout of it is done well, but as far as pictures go, they are absent.
-Title is somewhat deceiving, 10 minutes if you are only trying to find an example to use for reference.
-Not for those who have little or no programming experience. Explains functionality of code and the big picture. On more complex examples, details on sections of code are left out and assumed to be understood.
