Summary: easy to understand
Comment: This book doesnt waste time with all the little details and just talks about the major points. Want to be a MySQL guru? Then this books is NOT for you.
However, if you are know how to code and how to use flat files then this book is for you and will teach you how to code your scripts with the use of MySQL database.
Yes there are some typos like others pointed out but who uses the codes word for word from the book? You should know the basics of scripting language like Perl or PHP before buying this book. And you might want to buy a book about SQL.
This book isn't here to teach you Perl, PHP or SQL so making small errors in those codes shouldn't affect your buying decision.
This book teaches MySQL database nice and simply and I still use it as a referrence after 2 years of working with MySQL.

Summary: This is the second worst PC related book i've ever read
Comment: Two thirds of the book are about nothing. If the book was completed only on 100 or 150 pages ("the best of"), i could give 3 stars..

It is a bit chaotic ordered, there are mistakes in that book and author often uses magic formulas "If you need do this, do this: ...". The book is much more about How, not Why.

If you have some experiences with programming in any language, buying subj. is only wasting money..

Comment: I thought that this book would teach me the basics of MySQL in a relatively short time. While I did learn some things, I spent most of my time figuring out how the author got from one step to the next. There were numerous typos in the code that left me, as a beginner, scratching my head. Most SAMS books are great, but not this one.
