  • MySQL / MariaDB Book Reviews

    We'll review here those texts which are, or claim to be, about MySQL or MariaDB or InnoDB. We try to be current, but we do not always go out and buy the latest edition of every book, especially if we disliked the last edition. We try to be fair, but disclaim responsibility for any errors or omissions.

    We power searched the database for MySQL etc., deliberately excluding any publication date more than 2 years ago. The list is in order by rating and publication date.

    If the title contains the words "PHP and MySQL" or "Apache and MySQL" etc. -- i.e. MySQL isn't mentioned first -- then we consider it a PHP/etc. book first, and secondarily a MySQL book.

    Books which will appear within the next year include:

    MySQL High Availability: Tools for Building Robust Data Centers
    Charles Bell, Mats Kindahl, Lars Thalmann. O'Reilly, January 2014.
    The authors are current MySQL employees.

    Learning the MySQL Database
    Russell Dyer. O'Reilly, December 2013.
    The author is a former MySQL employee.

    PHP and MySQL Web Development (5th Edition)
    Luke Welling and Laura Thomson. Addison-Wesley, December 2013.
    The earlier editions seem to have sold well.

    MySQL's own documentation is downloadable from the MySQL site. You can order a museum-piece printed edition of the 2002 documentation here.
