For an updated verion of this great book by the same authors, look at SQL: The complete Reference - from Osborne. Most of the content is the same as the old book with about 300 pages of new material.

I wish I had known about this book three years ago when I became a PowerBuilder/Sybase programmer. This is a very clear and easy to ready book on a not too easy to understand subject. The authors have done a superb job in explaining what the SQL language is and how it works. I highly recommend this book to anybody dealing with RDBMS systems. It's a book that should be on anybody's reference library. The chapters on queries and referential integrity are very well written. Also the chapter on building dynamic SQL is a "must read" for anybody doing this type of SQL access

With 5 other SQL titles on my shelf, plus docs from Sybase, Oracle & MS SQL Server, this is the book I (almost) always grab first.
Well-organized and well-written, an excellent walk-through of "the basics" and as a syntax reference with good examples.
Look elsewhere however for advanced administration and optimization techniques (Celko's SQL for Smarties is good in this regard). Consider this book as best for Beginner-to-Intermediate topics.

This is a great book to begin to understand how to write queries for databases in SQL. It starts off with the simple queries, and moves onto the more advanced commands that are used for maintaining databases.
It is a simple and clear text, and has been an invaluable source whilst creating databases and writing code to interact with these databases.

Format: Paperback
This book is five years old and there are many SQL books in the market. Yet this book is unbeatable. Its scope and clarity set it clearly apart. Do not miss this book. A computer book which remains a leading one years after years in such a hot area as SQL and RDMS must be a great book. And this one is.

I was searching Amazon for a text on distributed database architectures when I stumbled across this classic. My own copy, bought years ago, is still kept within reach and is a viable today as the day it was written. Love the book - you will too.

My only regret is that these authors don't write books for every IT subject I'm studying. I am a CNE and MCSE who is studying to become a DBA. Simply put, this is the BEST starting book for ANYONE who is interested in databases or SQL.
