Here is what our customers are saying about this product.
"Great book. Good explanations. Just what I needed"
"Very good approach to teaching the basics of SQL, very clear & concise. I went to a course a week after reading this book & found I understood everything, the format/layout of the sql code in the book mean't I had good habits, whereas the course instructors code was less easy to understand. Thanks."
"This book is everything I needed to know about SQL EXCEPT ONE STINKING THING
Yes I AM a complete NOOB to sql ...
how do you create a DATABASE?
"Super job on SQL statements, etc. Highly recommend. But missing that key piece was the only reason I gave it a 9 instead of a 10
"Its actually really simple - but its the KEY to starting the entire process...
""CREATE DATABASE my_database_name""
"I already had a basic grasp of SQL. This book filled in the gaps of my basic knowledge and I can now progress to the next level. Rudy's bedside manner is impeccable, I found his explanations very friendly. Another book at the next level would be great, thanks Rudy."
"We're new to SQL and this was exactly the jump start we needed to begin developing what we need to do.
"This has to be the best SQL book I have found for beginners. I own a hard copy of the book and wanted a copy I can keep on my laptop for quick reference. This book is great as a beginner book in addition to a reference book. The images in the book make it easy to understand joins and other concepts. Buying the book online was also a very simple process and I love the fact that I could get it in PDF for iBooks and in kindle format."
"This book shows me how to make the best use of SQL for a new website. It also shows me some of the "gotchas" that I have to avoid. All in all, a good read with plenty of meat in the pages."
"Good, thorough, and clear explanation of SQL SELECT queries. Sparse on database and table design, although nice chapter on relationships and choice of keys."
"This is probably a good book for folk with no, or very little, SQL experience.
"However, for those who have programmed sql a little befoe, there will be litttle to learn."
"the books arrived late though the pdfs were good."
"A simple to follow and well explained guide to using SQL"
"I like the way it is presented, and would recommend it."
"Rudy has always been a fixture of help in the SQL and MySQL forums.
"His book 'Simply SQL' is terrific in that it is simply presented, a healthy dose of humor, and information that is structed in the way to lear SQL logically. By the time you read it cover to cover you walk away with a bevy of knowledge that immediately helps your Database design and scripting."
"This is a great book. Examples are very easy to understand and the explanations are very helpful."
"I had no clue SQL had this much power! I love this book, it's broken down very well and teaches you to fully understand what you're doing with every type of clause. I'm doing things much quicker and saving a lot of time rather than thinking about a solution through PHP when I can do almost all of it in one Query. I also found the book very nicely printed with a good font size."
