I want to purchase "MySQL: Visual QuickStart Guide" by Larry Ullman but can find only the Second Edition which seems to have been published in 2006. I just wanted to know if a later version is available, or is planned for publication soon.
If not, could you please advise if the contents of the Second Edition are still valid for use in 2018.

Hello! Thank you so much for the interest in the book. I really appreciate it. Unfortunately the second edition is over a decade old and is probably too outdated to recommend. I don't have a plan to update it at the moment. My PHP & MySQL book just came out in a fifth edition and has 100+ pages on MySQL and SQL. It's not quite the same, but maybe it's worth considering.
Sorry I don't have a better answer but thanks again!

Thanks for your prompt response. I already have the fifth edition of your book "PHP & MySQL for Dynamic Web Sites". I'll go through the chapters on MySQL and SQL again.
