Forta's examples are clear and his writing style is crisp and concise. As with earlier editions, this revision includes coverage of current versions of all major commercial SQL platforms. New this time around is coverage of MySQL, and PostgreSQL. All examples have been tested against each SQL platform, with incompatibilities or platform distinctives called out and explained.

P.s. this book will not actually teach you SQL in ten minutes, that is impossible. Plan to spend at least 30 minutes, a few days a week, reading and practicing exercises. Learning SQL (like anything else) takes practice and persistence. You will succeed if you put in the time. I defer to my favorite motto, "life is a marathon, not a sprint."
What I like most about the book is the way they've implemented their instruction method:
1. They give a quick description of the lesson and what they intend to demonstrate
2. Then they give an example
3. Then they go back and explain
And they provide lots of notes and hints along the way to help bolster your understanding
I'm a novice techie and this book is easy to understand. It's perfect for the reader who likes having lots of examples to review and try.
I highly recommend this book and the author
