The book comes with a CD with the Slackware Linux distribution and a several database tools so beginners (like me) with no access to a serious database system can get going quickly, but I'd recommend that anyone interested in professional database administration quickly followup the work in this book and the associated software by studying demo versions and manuals of the major commercial packages.
The book is not really about Linux, but about relational databases, and SQL (and odbc, etc.) in general. The examples are based off of freeware databases, thus fitting the loose categorization of a "Linux" book.
Although no "Dummies" book, I would highly recommend it as anyones first real SQL/relational database text!
The first two chapter will change the way you look at a databse, and the third will consolidate your knowledge on SQL. The other chapters deal with Web Integration and other topics.
Like a friend of mine ( +ORC, the Red Cracker ) always says, hystorical knowledge is a must! And this books puts you into the stage of database development. After reading this book, you'll know it ALL!
