Learning SQL by Alan Beaulieu

Yesterday, I finished reading my first book about SQL - Learning SQL by Alan Beaulieu.

Should say that a book has well structured chapters. In first chapter, author exposes background and explains what is  SQL. The next several chapters shows you how to write simple SQL statements and issues their via mysql command-line tool (author uses MySQL database server for examples).

I found for myself very interesting chapters about transactions, indexes and constraints. Before I've never read anything about these concepts.

Book is suitable for newcomer. After reading this book you will have strong understanding about main concepts of relational database. Also you'll be write clear, high perfomance queries.

It's 7/10
