Product Details

Praise

One of the best-organized travelogues we’ve seen into the SQL realm.”
—Newstips Bulletin

“Slightly more fun and more engaging [than Learning SQL from O’Reilly].”
—Python Programmer, YouTuber

Practical SQL will take you from an absolute databases beginner towards becoming a database and SQL master. This book is one of those books that you feel like reading a novel, not a technical book. It uses an easy to follow and understand the approach that makes it easy to read for people from all backgrounds.”
—Sara A. Metwalli, Towards Data Science

“I recommend reading Practical SQL by Anthony DeBarros for a more in-depth look on how to implement regression analysis and other analytical tools using SQL.”
—Michael Grogan, Towards Data Science
