I would have preffered a book speciffic to 'SMARTIES' as the title suggests, unfortunately those of us who've been writting SQL for a number of years will find this book of little use. A great book if you are new to SQL or have used SQL sparingly.
I was looking for a book that would help me write better, more efficient SQL code and performance tune my code, maybe insights into the compilers ...instead, the book in my opinion, is a good introduction to SQL or a refresher on SQL....
I found several errors in the book that annoyed me, not typos, but errors in the SQL itself. Maybe I'm too critical, but considering the price we pay for these books, I beleive I deserve more.
Mr. Celko is definately the 'guru' when it comes to SQL....but maybe I was expecting too much!

Celko's book is the only one I know, which touched more advanced levels of sql-programming; a serious drawback is, that it doesn't describe analytical functions, but uses sql89 even for queries, which are optimal candidates for analytical functions;

It's too bad I cannot rate this book as a ten. A word to the wise: Celko's books cover the ANSI STANDARD SQL 92 (mainly). If the database you are working hasn't implemented the ANSI Standard SQL 92 ... then how could his examples compile? If your database implements a vendor flavor to the standard ... how could his examples compile on your database? No excuses ... please ... for not knowing your database, because Celko plainly and clearly explains the standard (ANSI SQL 92 for example) he is writting for. It is the readers job to know their database and perform some interpretation and translation in order to get some of the examples to work. Celko writes generically for the standard. If you need a specific database book on SQL call your vendor ... I am sure they will refer you to something ... and if they cannot ... FIND ANOTHER DATABASE VENDOR!
Hey JOE, where can I get my hands on a pure theoritical SQL book that really explains the MATH behind SQL. If anyone knows, guitar17@lvcm.com is my email address.

First of all, I couldn't recommend this book for beginners. It is, however, PERFECT for the SQL programmer with some experience who is looking to take his/her SQL abilities to the next level. There are great pure SQL solutions for problems that many programmers think must be done outside of SQL in a host language. One of the most important lessons from the book is this: think in terms of sets and set theory instead of in terms of columns and rows. Lots of other great info though. Be warned: the examples are all written in the SQL-92 ANSI standard. Examples will have to be modified if your vendor-specific implementation of SQL doesn't follow the standard precisely. Kudos to Joe.

I cannot work without this book. Stuck with a poor database structure and huge volumes of data, I have had to explore every trick of the trade. Few computer books in general provide information that is accurate, helpful, and not repetitive of manuals and online material that is already available to you. This book is of exceptional value. Someone swiped mine and believe me, I must have another copy. How many of the computer books you have purchased get that kind of respect?
Warning: Beginners may need another book and it is not a replacement for your SQL vendor specific reference.

This book is indispensable for a thorough knowledge of SQL, but it is decidedly not for the beginner. I'd rate it 5 except for the abysmal editing and proofreading -- far too many errors for a book costing over $30. Kudos to Joe Celko, shame on Morgan Stanley.

I'm currently taking an undergraduate course in database and this book teaches you powerful and efficient SQL techniques that are not even cover in undergraduate books. Excellent for Beginners to SQL.

Celko has an amazing ability of making technical stuff seem readable and easy. A very enjoyable read.
