"Head First SQL" will show you the fundamentals of SQL and how to really take advantage of it. Is your data dragging you down? Are your tables all tangled up? Well we've got the tools to teach you just how to wrangle your databases into submission. Using the latest research in neurobiology, cognitive science, and learning theory to craft a multi-sensory SQL learning experience, "Head First SQL" has a visually rich format designed for the way your brain works, not a text-heavy approach that puts you to sleep.Maybe you've written some simple SQL queries to interact with databases. But now you want more, you want to really dig into those databases and work with your data. "Head First SQL" will show you the fundamentals of SQL and how to really take advantage of it. We'll take you on a journey through the language, from basic INSERT statements and SELECT queries to hardcore database manipulation with indices, joins, and transactions. We all know "Data is Power" - but we'll show you how to have "Power over your Data".

    Review quote
    "Lynn Beighley nimmt den Leser in Head First SQL mit auf eine Reise durch die Welt relationaler Datenbanken. In dieser Welt spricht man SQL, und diese Anfragesprache lernt der Leser auf die bekannte lockere Art und Weise der Reihe. [...] Lynn Beighley ist es gelungen, dieses sonst recht theoretisch und trocken vermittelte Thema interessant und locker, aber dennoch anspruchsvoll zu päsentieren. Alle wesentlichen Konzepte relationaler Datenbanken und Aspekte der damit verbundenen Anfragesprache SQL behandelt sie - sogar diejenigen, die sonst "wehtun" (Stichwort: nicht korrelierte Unterabfragen). Die zahlreichen Codebeispiele lassen sich mit SQL einfach und schnell nachvollziehen. - iX, Juni 2008
