The book essentially introduces the reader to the "thinking out of the box" approach to solving difficult SQL problems. The author walks us through the logic behind solutions of a collection of SQL puzzles that were submitted by readers of his magazine columns over the years. He demonstrates that there are numerous ways to solve SQL problems and that sometimes the solution lies right in the design of the base tables. But more importantly he helps the reader see that you can often solve seemingly unsolvable sql problems if you approach the problem with the right technique.
My one complaint is that the book does not come with turnkey source code files and they are not available for download. So the reader will have to type everything to test the solutions solutions that are presented.
Short of this there is plenty to learn here for the SQL programmer that wishes to pick up a few tricks of the trade from a pro.
A stellar book for instruction is SQL, as not only do the problems teach about how to solve SQL problems correctly, but many of the problems are quite difficult, providing for major mind expanding opportunities.
Definitely worth the money if you have an SQL package to attempt to solve the problems with.
You should have some SQL experience before trying this book.
