not suitable for audiobook

I was already skeptical if it would be suitable for an audiobook, but given the many good reviews I gave it a try, even though I wasn't sure if the reviews sounded entirely genuine. they clearly are not - audible, please get rid of the fake reviews. I'm returning it.

Right the first time

The title is spot on. You will have a clear understanding of the ground level of SQL by the time you finish this book. The set of commands taught here will have you maneuvering around a database with confidence. It can get more complicated later, but this is the perfect set of training wheels.

Great beginner's guide

Fantastic teaching process! I work with RDBMS in my day-to-day, and this book is a very nice introduction to SQL. It doesn't go over your head, and is accessible to complete novices.

highly recommended

This book gives a quick start to learning SQL and is easy to follow. The only issues I found were some typo's near the end of the book: the last 2 chapters, and the exercises at the end.
