This is a book about two Relational Database Engines. Even if the concept beyond Relational Databases is from 70's, they never had taken so much attention as in the last years. The World Wide Web boom and generalization and the awakening from almost every commercial business to e-commerce and Web, and the need to maintain big dynamic sites make Databases a day-to-day need.

And MySQL & mSQL, by Randy Jay Yarger, George Reese & Tim King, is a book for everyone who, like me uses any of this database servers. This book explain how to do things in both servers, from configuration to programming, including yet a lot of interfaces documentation on some of the programming languages most used now-a-days.

The reader is presented too with examples on every language, for both servers, and a good explanation on most important functions and libraries, and a description on most functions and commands on both servers, and a minor chapter on other databases, like PostgreSQL.

Maybe this isn't a book for advanced users, but contains all the information that a user usually needs, even if the problems inherited from the simplicity and fast concept on mSQL and MySQL, like the inexistence of nested selects, stored procedures or triggers or even transactions and constraints are not focused here.

The selected way used to present these products is through CREATE, INSERT, SELECT and UPDATE, very useful to beginners, but commands with real utility, like DESCRIBE and SHOW are sent to second, even third plan, that is uneasily forgiven, but don't take the utility to this book.
