Mistakes and Overly Simplistic Examples Make This Book a Los
Give this book a miss. While the format was okay, the text contains an incredible number of mistakes and omissions. Consequently, examples, explanations, and exercises often make no sense. Also, many examples tend to be simplistic to the point of stupidity. They confer minimal educational value. Spend your time and money on a book with better content that has been more rigorously proofed.

not bad, but...
The "hours" are pretty short. Many chapters involve about 10 minutes of reading. The information is good, and the descriptions are clear, but there's really no reason to purchase this book, when the New Riders MySQL book includes a tutorial that's just as easy to follow, and a wealth of additional information. Julie Meloni, according to the back cover, has contributed to Webmonkey columns...this book would've made an excellent Webmonkey tutorial but is a little light for a book-length project.
