Google is the best book. The last time I bought a book to learn a
programming language was more than eight years ago because my
university class required it.

What is the best book to read about MySql?


"MySQL" by Paul DuBois seemed to be well regarded so I bought it and it is
pretty easy to read and understand. It has 1294 pages including a chapter on
programming with PHP.

Assuming you already have some knowledge of MySQL (which I am sure
you do, since we have been corresponding in PHP-related newsgroups
for a while), I would highly recommmend "High-Performance MySQL"
by Jeremy Zawodny and Derek Balling.

Cheers,

I don't know about that. Newsgroup posts tend to be short and are
imperfect at giving one a background understanding of important issues.
The source materials and manuals are overwhelming and it is difficult
to know where to start with them. Good, well written, in-depth
tutorials are few and far between. It is useful when a good writer can
patiently explain how things work and give some guidance about what is
more important and what is less important.
