Another reviewer mentioned "bugs" in this book, i.e., commands in the book that don't work. as I understand it, one of the difficulties with open-source software is that in can be available in a number of different packages from a number of different distributors that all work in slightly different ways. Therefore, if you're not using exactly the same version of MySQL, it's not going to work exactly the same for you. Given this inherent difficulty in writing a guide like this Larry Ullman does an excellent job. As some other reviewers have pointed out, the step-by-step approach of the Visual Quickstart Guides works really well for some people, like me. My first one was Liz Castro's HTML book, which got me hooked.
The best feature of Larry Ullman's book, though, is the fact that he has set up an online support site to accompany it. Larry personally answers questions from readers who have gotten stuck at various points. This is above and beyond the call of duty for most tech-book writers. Unfortunately for Larry, his wish to have more readers who have finished the book help out with the question answering hasn't come true yet, so if you do finish the book, go to the site and help him out!

Format: Paperback
An excellent balance of RDBMS theory (including normalization), using MySQL (installation and full coverage of usage of SQL), and interfacing with SQL from several languages (PHP, Perl, Java), along with some "advanced topics". I plan to use this as a textbook for a MySQL applications course.

The Peachpit Press' Visual QuickStart series is designed for an audience who prefer step-by-step instructions on using programs but can't stand the superficial coverage and the patronizing tone of the Dummies series. Larry Ullman's "MySQL: Visual QuickStart Guide" is a solid introduction to a popular open source database program that's quickly becoming an industry standard. If you want a step-by-step tutorial showing you know how to set up a MySQL database and learn about the basics of relational database programming, this book's for you. Ullman even shows step-by-step instructions for different platforms, ensuring that no matter what OS you use, you won't get lost in the tutorial.
If you have already successfully installed your MySQL database and have tinkered around creating manipulating a few databases, you don't need this book. Instead, turn to Paul DuBois' wonderful and highly-acclaimed "MySQL" published by New Riders. I also recommend that book for readers who have successfully completed Ullman's book.
