Best reference for SQL
This book is the perfect book for you if you are writing SQL on the AS/400 or using a ODBC/JDBC to submit SQL to the AS/400. It contains all the little-used gems that make your job easier. In addition, it shows both the common and uncommon uses of SQL in clear, practical examples you can easily repeat.
It's organized so that a programmer under the gun can easily find what they need and get on with the project. In my opinion, it is "THE" essential reference for SQL on the AS/400.

Great learning tool !
Anyone working with AS400 query should look into buying this book. Not only does Howard explain how SQL works, he also gives working examples with the sample data included on the CD. Now using AS400 query seems a little odd and very cumbersome.
His writing is laid out very well and easy to read. While reading this, I felt that he was actually there explaining the chapters to me as a one on one instructor.

Best for PC/400 software developers
If you wondered how to call AS400 programs from your Visual Basic program correctly, this book is your one source for how to do it.
First book on the market that answered all of my client/server questions when I deal with PC to AS400 programming tasks!
Not only does Howard do a good job of explaining how stored procedures work, but gives some great coding examples on how to get you up and running correctly. He goes the extra mile and talks about performance too, one thing that normally is lacking in many others out there.
Nice job Howard. Look forward to others in the future!
