"If I could, I'd have any developer on a database centric application read this, and DBAs as well. There is a lot here for both sides to learn about just how much they depend upon and impact one another. "

"This book is packed with treasures. You will experience an 'Ahha' moment before putting it down. Mr. Faroult's significant experience and clear thinking is generously shared within these pages."

wanting to improve their own query writing, or queries written by others."

"Many books cover program refactoring, but there has been a lack of books on refactoring of database code, until now. Stéphane Faroult's new book has many advanced SQL techniques that I have been using in my own work. I enthusiastically recommend the book to others."
