Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
Ben Forte is a great instructor.
MariaDB is the successor to MySql and most conventions are similar to MySQL. That makes this book even more useful.
His teaching method works.
He defines a term. Shows its use, and then describes why it happened. The examples do not require that you go sequential order.
As your skills develop and you make your start as a Data Base Administrator, this is a great first step.
Overall, I would recommend it, and will be keeping it on my bookshelf, so to speak.
