2012 New Sams Teach Yourself SQL In 10 Minutes Now Shipping
My little Sams Teach Yourself SQL in 10 Minutes is my best-selling title, it has sold over 1/4 million copies in English, has been translated into more than a dozen languages, has created 3 spin-off titles focused on specific DBMSs, and has even become a textbook in numerous colleges and universities worldwide.
I'm really excited to announce that the new fourth edition is now shipping. In this edition I cover newer versions of popular databases like SQL Server, MySQL, Oracle, and PostgreSQL, and have also added specific coverage for important new options, most notably SQLite. But, the most important enhancement in this new edition is that it is printed in color. Colored titles and headers are pretty cool, but where you really see the value is in long SQL statements that are so much more readable when color-coded.
My copies of this new edition showed up today, and online bookstores should be shipping it next week!
