A brief introduction to MySQL

Disorganized Copy-Pasted Mess
References are all from pop tech sites or stackoverflow. Clearly copy-pasted - and lazily at that. A chapter on roles and permissions suddenly veers back into query statements for the third time for no reason. Most of the book reads like the manual page from the MSDN articles because they literally are. Verbatim. Reading the MSDN articles may even be more useful since it will be more coherent. Even for free this book isn’t worth the space.
The sample is only two pages.
I’m not gonna by a book that doesn’t even show me the table of contents in the sample.
