Summary: Hardly a "bible"
Comment: I purchased this book with great anticipation of expanding my knowledge of mySQL and making great us of the section on perl. Overall, I'm very dissapointed. The book itself goes into great detail about certain things that need not such a vast description, yet only privide single examples for some important things.
The CD-ROM is useless. I was expacting it to have code from the book, whereas it's a collection of mySQL apps and programs that you can get free elswhere.
Having explored the perl chapter of the book in greatest detail, it provides inadequite examples with a lot of inneficient coding.
I give the book credit, however, for covering as much ground as it does, mySQL with perl, PHP and ODBC. Overall, however, not worth the money.

Summary: Execellent book... layout could be improoved.
Comment: Very good book. I'll recomend it to anyone learning MySQL.

Some examples did not work in my server but after contacting the author we/he resolved the problem. Problem was related to new release of PHP. The CD-ROM does not include the examples so be ready to do some typing.

The pictures in the book are hard to see.

Summary: False advertising
Comment: Don't waste your money on this. The book and reviews claim to include binaries and source of MySQL database but the CD-ROM contains neither. Bogus.
