book/site recommendations for learning about doing complex queries in MySQL

Please recommend books or web sites to learn more about how to do complex
queries using MySQL. A potential client needs lots of summarizations and
sub-queries.

Many thanks.

While I cannot offer recommendation on any books, let me suggest the
following.

From what you are saying, the client may be looking ad-hoc querying
and flexible reporting. If so, may want to look at OLAP (online
analytical processing), and tools like Business Object. Somehow your
client may never be satisfied with static reports that can be produced
with a combo of php & mysql.
