A real Handbook,
Rezension bezieht sich auf: MySQL: Das Handbuch für Administratoren (Galileo Computing) (Gebundene Ausgabe)
The book in issue is complete from any point of view. All that one needs in order to create and to manage a MySQL-database is explained in this volume. A particular stressing lays in the section devoted to the programming with mysql which enables the reader to enter in the interior of the database. Unfortunately, there are some typos in the listings. One frequent error is the wrong scope of some function. Take care of the parentheses and of the delimiters. The introduction, devoted to the mathematical environment in which MySQL was born is not very accurate. For example, it is historically and conceptually false that a relation algebra is founded on set-theory. Alfred Tarski, inspired by Ernst Schroeder's work on relations, gave some definition of "Relation Algebra" and worked out with Monk and Henkin the "Cylindric Algebras" (a sort of generalization of the concept of relation algebras). The milieu was purely algebraic. A set is viewed as a particular type of relation (the composition of a relation with the universal relation). Surely, we can develop relation theory starting with the concept of "ordered couple" set-theoretically, but this was not the aim of Tarski. See for example his last book with Givant. For the state of the art in Relation Algebras, see the Handbook by Roger D. Maddux. Apart this slip, the text is fantastic because is auto-consistent. You don't need to search elsewhere for concepts introduced in the book. Anything you must know is contained there. Very useful the appendix with the syntax of any MySQL command. The book deserve interest not only for future administrators but for anyone who is interested in MySQL. As usually, Galileo Press publishes a nice book: hardcover, paper of quality, correct and pleasant layout.
