David James Perry

Author David James Perryabout this book: Practical SQL is an attempt to "bridge the gap" between overly-simplistic online tutorials and the vast tomes of knowledge traditional publishers like to put on the shelf.

In my years as a programmer, SQL and otherwise, I've noticed that all I ever used the four-inch-thick tomes for was reference after I'd become entrenched in a language. I also noticed that there was an awkward gap between what the tutorial taught and the point at which you were good enough to merit a reference book. Practical SQL is my first attempt to bridge that gap.

The concept behind Practical SQL (and hopefully more "Practical " books to come) is to publish those in-between bits which, based on my personal experience, as well as the experience of my peers, will be used most often - in short, to educate to the likely tasks instead of assuming that everyone either needs the bare basics or a vast tome.

My hope is that Practical SQL will make the SQL language more available, widely understood and easier to use at a meaningful skill level for programmers everywhere, not just SQL programmers and DBAs.
