Of course, I do not expect to learn everything I need to know from this little book. But, I am sure that I will be turning to it time and again as I work my way through in depth sources and actual projects.

The only downside to this book is that it does not include a list of reserved words for MySQL. Other than that, it's a great reference.
By making use of the information presented in this book you will hopefully be able to extract data preconverted into the format you require instead of having to reformat it after extraction. You will be able to fine tune your code to minimize the need for substantial processing in the calling program. You will be able to harness the full power of mySQL. An ideal reference resource. Unfortunately it doesn't cover all the functions available for converting your data and so in some cases there will be an easier way to set up the call than the functions that the book does list suggests.
Since it is written as a pocket reference, it of course doesn't have all the commands or even all the variants/options for commands. What is does have are the commands and syntax that you are likely to use the most with some good examples.
Just know what you are and are NOT getting. It's not a bible, a step-by-step, or a cookbook. It is (as it is labeled) a pocket reference, at which it excels. Highly recommended.
