The book also includes a comprehensive reference section providing detailed information on MySQL’s structure, language, syntax, and APIs.

The fifth edition of this bestselling book has been meticulously revised and updated to thoroughly cover the latest features and capabilities of MySQL 5.5, as well as to add new coverage of features introduced with MySQL 5.6.

Known for its speed and ease of use, MySQL has proven itself to be particularly well-suited for developing database-backed websites and applications.
