First paragraph

You say: ... (we discuss multi-table queries in Chapter 4 onward), and then two sentences later you say: We will explore multi-table queries in future chapters. This is redundant. I would drop the second reference and stick with the "Chapter 4 onward" one.

2nd paragraph

There is a syntax error in the sample syntax given for the "CREATE TABLE" command. There is an extra comma which, if used, will create invalid code. The code as printed in the 1st edition of the book reads: CREATE TABLE Tablename (column_name type, column_name, type, .....) It should read: CREATE TABLE Tablename (column_name type, column_name type, .....)
