Book Promo Winner - Head First SQL - Tuesday, October 16th 2007

Thanks and congrats to all the winners.
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!
Hi Laurentiu, you don't need to pay anywhere to buy this books as you are already selected a winner by random.

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

Thank you for providing such a good interactive forum and especially the book promotions that happens.
I was anyway going to purchase this book but I will read the copy which I won.
These are also my thoughts. Thanks for putting them so nice into words ;)
