This book is a streamlined, concise presentation of the ANSI-standard SQL:1999 that all implementations seek to match. It presents the SQL data types and commands and provides examples of their use. The book concentrates on the SQL functions that most people are likely to need, without getting highly technical about obscure, little-used features. It makes a handy reference for the experienced SQL programmer as well as an easy to follow introduction for people new to SQL.
