Lynn,
The above post is on behalf of the book promo team.

Now as myself and as one of the moderators of this forum: I can't believe how many posts we had about your book. The level of excitement was overwhelming.

Good luck on book sales. I can tell we have lots of interested people here! Even though I already know SQL, I plan to look at this book for entertainment value. HF books are fun to read!

Jeanne

and thanks for the author for their time and replying on ranchers queries,

It's been a pleasure. And I've gotten a list of topics that might work for an advanced book out of it. Sorry, it won't be open source, and it won't cover object oriented SQL (to be honest, I didn't know there was an OO SQL, and I couldn't find any useful information on it). But I do have some great ideas for a future advanced SQL book. Maybe after my current one is finished...

Thanks again, it's been a pleasure!

I'm commenting here instead of the thread where this was originally discussed because I don't see the original. I think it is called OOQL (object oriented query language.) I used it with Jasmine - an object oriented database. As this is a different language, I wouldn't expect it to be in a SQL book. Just like I wouldn't expect JPA's query language to be there.
