First Book Released§

MySQL in Nutshell

My first book, MySQL in a Nutshell is now available for sale. It was released on May 3. It’s a little over 300 pages long and contains reference information on SQL statements, functions, server and client settings, and a few APS’s (Perl, PHP, and C) as of version 4.1 of the MySQL server. So far I’ve gotten some good reviews on Amazon’s site and a few other sites. You can see a write up about it on the publisher, O’Reilly’s site.

I must say, I’m very proud of the work I’ve done and it’s wonderful to finally published a book. I’ve discussed the possibility of doing another book with O’Reilly and some other publishers, but I haven’t found a topic that works for one of them and me. Until then, I think I’m going to push to write a fiction book.
