    MySQL books suggestions?

    I am looking to get a MySQL book. Any suggestions?

    I was going to get this one: http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/AS...667583-6975102

    But wasn't sure if there were others out there that people preferred...

    That isn't too bad - I'd read the 1st edition.

    I do suggest that if you're actually thinking of learning relational databases in general, getting a book specific to MySQL isn't too good an idea. Otherwise, have fun!

    Well, right now I am trying to learn the ends and outs to MySQL and SQL Server. I have a book on relational databases, just want to get specific with those two [img]images/smilies/smile.gif[/img]

    Andrea, I will take a look at it on Safari (just got to remember to cancel after 14 days )

    /me read 1st edition also - I'd say it's pretty much the mySQL bible. Excellent reference, just wish it was smaller so I could lug it to and from work!
