Wildly Over-ambitious Book Title of the Week

One of my co-workers has on his desk "Teach yourself SQL in 10 minutes". Yes, it is a SAMS book.

According to Ben Forta, the author, it is one of the best selling SQL books of all time. Not surprisng: who could resist a title like that?

I like his emphasis on getting stuff done. Even so, I think ten minutes is just about long enough to decide whether to pronounce it "sequel" or "ess queue ell".

I say "ess queue ell" for the language and "mysequel" for the db. Is that a character flaw?

my word: hollo - oddly appropriate.

...and contents content specific to IBM DB2, Microsoft Access, Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL, Oracle, PostgreSQL, and Sybase Adapative Server.

But does it cover the fast=true parameter?

word: proto
