SQL Queries for Mere Mortals, 4th Ed (Addison Wesley)
Wednesday, 25 April 2018

This book is a tutorial on writing effective queries with the latest SQL standards and database applications. It shows how to create reliable queries for current SQL-based databases, from simple data selection and filtering to joining multiple tables and modifying sets of data. In this new edition author John L. Viescas has updated this hands-on classic with more advanced techniques. In two brand-new chapters, he shows how to perform complex calculations on groups for sophisticated reporting, and how to partition data into windows for more flexible aggregation.
