Lynn Beighley is a fiction writer stuck in a technical book writer's body. Upon discovering that technical book writing actually paid real money, she learned to accept and enjoy it.
After going back to school to get a Masters in Computer Science, she worked for the acronyms NRL and LANL. Then she discovered Flash, and wrote her first bestseller.
A victim of bad timing, she moved to Silicon Valley just before the great crash. She spent several years working for Yahoo! and writing other books and training courses. Finally giving in to her creative writing bent, she moved to the New York area to get an MFA in Creative Writing.
Her Head First-style thesis was delivered to a packed room of professors and fellow students. It was extremely well received, and she finished her degree, finished Head First SQL, and can't wait to begin her next book.
Lynn loves traveling, cooking, and making up elaborate background stories about complete strangers. She's a little scared of clowns.
Great way to learn a new skill. The Head First approach is easily retained by any kind of learner.Published 14 days ago by Mama Birdy 64
Excellent reference and step by step guide. Some things are a bit wonky in the Kindle version.Published 2 months ago by Webgecko
Awful book. Claims to use 'new' techniques to get the info in your head, but it's just stupid, juvenile and does a very poor job of getting the info across.Published 2 months ago by Louis PK
This book is meant for high school kids with an interest in SQL in my opinion. Not for a serious college student. Read morePublished 2 months ago by irondad

It is an easy way to understand SQL
These Head First books are very different but convey the idea in a friendly manner. I think they are better for learning then they are for a desk reference.Published 3 months ago by Shawn C. Gross
