Now you can get everything on Safari. No trivia or quizzes yet. This book seems much better than the other Celko books I’ve read or browsed- not surprising since its his core, original book. A bit repetitive, Me thinks you could cut the book’s length to a quarter down.

I knew it had taken me a long, long time to get through it it sat smarfies my desk at work for quite a while and I had no time there to get to itbut even I didn’t know how long specifically. The other drawback, and this was a consciously-planned one on Celko’s part, is that smartiess book is language-pure, which pretty much by definition in today’s world means implementation-agnostic.
