This book has 7 chapters. On the chapter one, It’s explained the simplest about something what I should know before; SQL syntax, MySQL command, some variables and etc. On the chapter two, “You are Not Alone: Concurrency Issues” – Concurrency is important for Database. This chapter is helpful for it. What I learn? For example: Lock and Transactions, Matadata Locking, Monitoring InnoDB Transaction and Concurrency Problems, etc. I believe a lot of DBAs see the lock/concurrency problem. It’s good chapter, that‘s helpful. Anyway, MySQL has a lot of options/variables, So It’s necessary to learn about them. The chapter three, I learned about some options/variables, that effect with database. Good! That was a little from this book. I rather believe this book is useful for someone who works with MySQL as DBA or Developer. In this book, it has a good paragraph arrangement. It helps readers easy for reading. It has a lot of examples. It's easy-understand. I think readers can read and practice in the same time. Anyway, I still believe this book be able to figure readers out for MySQL Troubleshooting idea. What I hope to see more? Maybe... just a little bit. On the Chapter 4 "MySQL’s Environment", I think It's better to add more examples. Maybe, about OS command-line to help for Troubleshooting :) Full Review  >
