"Having used MySQL for many months without having any books on the subject, I can attest for the quality of the online MySQL documentation. When I received my copy of the book "MySQL and mSQL", my initial thoughts were on what this book could provide me that the online documentation couldn't. Why would someone want to spend $34.95 US on a book, while excellent free documentation was available? It was with these thoughts that I began reading the book."

"In the end, I found the entire book to be jam-packed with excellent content. It is not, however, a book that many people will read from cover to cover. There are some introductory chapters that the veterans can skip. Also, since many of the chapters are based around using specific programming languages with MySQL and mSQL, you can skip these chapters, as well, unless you are planning to use those languages with MySQL and mSQL. Finally, a big portion of the book is mearly reference material that can be found on the web easily, though it is very nice to have it all in one place and nicely organized."
