From the Back Cover

The Definitive Solutions-Oriented Guide to DB2 for z/OS: Now Fully Updated for Both v9 and v10!

DB2 Developer’s Guide is the world’s #1 go-to source for on-the-job information on programming and administering DB2. Now, three-time IBM Information Champion Craig S. Mullins has thoroughly updated this classic for the newest versions of DB2 for z/OS: DB2 V9 andV10.

This Sixth Edition builds on the unique approach that has made previous editions so valuable.

Well organized and useful to both the novice and the experienced DB2 z/OS professional. Can be utilized as a reference for specific topics or read sequentially or randomly. Craig provides good examples and explains difficult concepts in an easily understood manner.

If Sheryl Larson recommends this book (which she does), then that is good enough for me. I learned a couple of new SQL techniques after just browsing through a few pages. Lots more to go through.

I love this book it is comprehensive, suggests best practices. It is well organized so you can usually find what you are looking for. I had the previous edition for version 9 and it is wonderful too. I use it for reading assignment s when I’m doing training to backup whatever topic I’m discussing.
