This is quite the compliment. UK IT Magazine, The Register, has proclaimed that my “Sams Teach Yourself SQL in 10 Minutes has established itself as the gold standard for introductory SQL books”, and is recommending both that book and my new “Sams Teach Yourself Regular Expressions in 10 Minutes”. Story at http://www.theregister.co.uk/2004/05/04/10_minutes_for_a_new_skill/. Thanks to Dan Alig for bringing this to my attention. (FYI, links to both books are at http://www.forta.com/books/).
