MySQL Crash Course Now In Its Seventh Printing

It's been two and a half years since I published my MySQL Crash Course (a MySQL specific adaptation of my Sams Teach Yourself SQL in 10 Minutes), and during this time the book has proven to be incredibly popular, especially with MySQL beginners. And today I was informed that MySQL Crash Course is now in its seventh printing! Seven printings in two and a half years, I think that's my new personal record.

(BTW, it's the same edition, so no need to buy another copy if you have one already).

    Let me just add for anyone who comes in here: I highly recommend this book. It is a very concise, straight to the point MySQL book. You can read it in one afternoon and learn quite a bit.

  • David Tucker

    I agree. I personally own this. Highly recommended.

    Nothing to be said that hasn't already been said. This is THE mySQL book. No question about it. Congrats Ben!

    I use this book frequently as a desktop companion with my work. Congratulations Ben and thank you for all your hard work even outside the realm of ColdFusion.

    Chris,

    There is no new edition in the works yet. My guess is that I'll revised the boo kfor MySQL 6.
