Well written, well organized, excellent reference Sept. 24 2012
By Peter J. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I've worked a lot with MySQL, over the past few years. I'm completely self-taught, however, and obviously, I've had gaps to deal with. While Google is dandy in a pinch, a book like this really fills in the blanks and provides a far more comprehensive understanding. Granted, if you're just starting out with MySQL, this is probably not the best book for you. Just looking at it from a learner's perspective, you'd better have at least a basic grasp under your belt or this book is going to be a tough one to tackle. If you've got a good background in it though, and are looking to be a real expert in the field, I'd definitely recommend this book. Even if you've already read the second edition, this third edition is definitely worth the purchase as the information is updated and the authors really expand previously presented topics. My overall take: It's well written, well organized and easy to reference when needed.

This is THE MySQL performance book. Period. April 1 2012
By Ignacio A. Ruiz Reyes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Every chapter is very well crafted, with a precise balance between theory and practice, and full of invaluable nuggets, sometimes transcending the MySQL arena and applicable to any database! Such cases are Chapter-Benchmarking MySQL and Chapter 3-Profiling Server Performance, very solid foundations for the reading ahead.

All over the text, authors propose tools, examples of use and proven diagnostic techniques, that will greatly improve your performance firefighter skills and enhance your knowledge of MySQL internals. Nevertheless, what gives this book the five star is taking into consideration the physical part of database structures in play when speaking about performance, which is something most authors don't include; plus treatment on MySQL high availability and cloud features, which we'll increasingly see on customers.

There is something that kind of bugged me at times and was references to a specific commercial MySQL offering and tools, but after taking a look to that company web-site, found that is a great contributor to the MySQL community and you can actually use the tools!

Super in-depth. Essentially a textbook for the dedicated professional. Jan. 16 2014
By Penn Name - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
You'd be hard-pressed to find the kind of in-depth information this book contains anywhere else. This is in-depth information on complicated settings of storage engines and examples about handling race conditions and other advanced performance topics.

Best book on MySQL March 18 2014
By Don Wilson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a perfect book if you're looking to improve your skills on MySQL. I'd recommend this book if you're at an intermediate level of MySQL knowledge and looking to improve on overall query performance and fine tune MySQL settings. It's a great addition to my bookshelf. Each subsequent edition adds lots of material - I currently own the 1st edition and the 3rd edition and the latter is over twice as thick as the first edition.
