Written with both beginner and intermediate database developers in mind, this clear, concise guide teaches readers about the relationships between the distribution of data in a database and the way in which queries of various types are processed.

The book teaches not only SQL syntax but also explains the proper structure of SQL queries and how a query affects the SQL processor and system performance.
