I'm looking for a "dogs gonads" book on learning SQL in hopefully as database neutral way as possible, SQL99 that sort of thing.
I know JDBC fairly well and the basics of SQL so want it to cover advanced techniques yet be readable. What do you guys recommend coz amazon has 954 listed and I'll be retired by the time I check them all out!!
BTW I need a good one on ANT too but this is the wrong forum :roll:

They are discussing books in another thread in this forum:

Also, the O'Reilly book for Ant is good. It's only about 100 pages and it's not too complicated to read.

I would recommend the book "Mastering Oracle SQL" from O'Reilly, which I bought it for months ago. It is really a good book to learn neutral SQL..... It is going to Oracle SQL in later chapters...
