    Great SQL book. I'm very pleased. I got this book because I needed to learn SQL and I needed to learn it quick! Each lesson took me about 15-30 minutes to go through (I read slow, and then I also did a lot of playing around with the databases at work), but it gave me all the background I needed to start programming. I recommend this book for anyone new to SQL that just needs to learn it quick. It goes through the most commonly used SQL statements and their clauses, gives different examples for the most common DBMS, defines terms (like SQL and DBMS), and is short. There are a lot of advanced topics in the last lessons that he just breezes over (to keep it short), but that's what SQL in 21 Days is for -- to explain advanced topics. Honestly I thought about getting a bigger, more in depth book, but I'm really glad I got this smaller book. I would have been overwhelmed with any others. I felt like this book left off right where I wanted to just jump in and start programming. Who this book... More > isn't for: People not new to SQL (It just covers the basics and skims over more advanced topics -- but it wasn't written for advanced users; it's just an introduction.), people looking for a book about databases (this book only goes into the basic SQL stuff, though it does mention a couple good practices for database structure), anyone who wants an in-depth book about SQL (it really does just cover the basics). In short, this book is for newbies as well as for experts who need to learn SQL quickly: just not basics also deep references with more than 700 pages at very low price, an intro into more advanced topics, it's very user friendly, easy to follow, and you can get through it in an afternoon if need be. Highly recommended.< Less
