I have notices a trend in tech books. They are being written in conversational English.
Ben Forte is a great instructor.
MariaDB is the successor to MySql and most conventions are similar to MySQL. That makes this book even more useful.
His teaching method works.
He defines a term. Shows its use, and then describes why it happened. The examples do not require that you go sequential order.

As your skills develop and you make your start as a Data Base Administrator, this is a great first step.

I wonder the style, though it's brief you will find all necessary info to kickstart working with MariaDB. Esp. if you have some basics of MySQL. The rest (thorough reference, details) you can find elsewhere.

Good intro book to Maria DB - if you are going to seriously use Maria DB use this as a starting point and then you will probably want to purchase a more in depth publication

If you know MySQL, then this book is not helpful at all. I hoped for discussions in particular on the various storage engines, and there was basically nothing. The book is nothing more than a basic reference.
