MySQL in a Nutshell, Second Edition

By DatabaseJournal.com Staff

[From O'Reilly]

More importantly, the software will be broadly adopted by larger companies now that it has the backing of a multi-billion dollar company like Sun. Sun can assure large companies, institutions, and governments that MySQL is here to stay and that it's fully supported."

MySQL aficionados confirm that this is indeed the case, making the new second edition of Dyer's book, MySQL in a Nutshell (O'Reilly, US $34.99) even more timely.
