Front Cover

-- Covers MySQL 4.1, the new version due out in mid-2002 that will add significant new functionality to MySQL.

MySQL is the most widely installed open-source database. Approximately 3.5 million MySQL servers are in use and more than 45% of databases used on Linux worldwide are MySQL databases. Its latest version, MySQL 4.1, closes the gap between MySQL and other, more sophisticated databases. The second edition of Sams Teach Yourself MySQL in 21 Days has been completely rewritten by a new author. The book enables a reader to create powerful databases using MySQL. He will not only learn how to integrate MySQL into a database-driven Web site, but also how to embed MySQL into other compiled applications.

Just another average computer book. Sams Teach Yourself MySQL in 21 Days was luckily obtained rather cheaply, otherwise it would most definitely have been a waste of money. Just a garden variety no need to care really example of its type. Read full review
