Just a note to let you know how much I liked your book on mySQL. After looking through a stack of books, this one hit the spot exactly with the specific information and the examples running on my new Mac with OS X.

Thank you very much for producing this excellent book.
I am a newbie when it comes to this sort of thing and your book has opened up a whole new world for me.
This has very quickly answered an awful lot of questions I had about using MySQL and PHP together with Linux and Apache.
I will definately check out other books in the style of the ‘Visual Quickstart Guide’. I couldn’t recommend them enough!
Your book is very well structured, easy to read and has been higly usefull for my first MySQL steps Thanks for this great job.
