“There are books you buy, books you keep, books you keep on your desk, and thanks to O’Reilly and the Head First crew, there is the penultimate category, Head First books. They’re the ones that are dog-eared, mangled, and carried everywhere. Head First SQL is at the top of my stack. Heck, even the PDF I have for review is tattered and torn.”
—Bill Sawyer, ATG Curriculum Manager, Oracle
“This is not SQL made easy; this is SQL made challenging, SQL made interesting, SQL made fun. It even answers that age-old question ‘How to teach non-correlated subqueries without losing the will to live?’ This is the right way to learn—it’s fast, it’s flippant, and it looks fabulous.”
—Andrew Cumming, Author of SQL Hacks, Zoo Keeper at sqlzoo.net
“Outrageous! I mean, SQL is a computer language, right? So books about SQL should be written for computers, shouldn’t they? Head First SQL is obviously written for human beings! What’s up with that?!
—Dan Tow, Author of SQL Tuning
