Sqlite coverI’ve just completed the very pleasurable reading of Michael Owens’ The Definitive Guide to SQLite published by Apress. Apart from the book’s major focus on SQLite, the C library which implements an embeddable SQL relational database system, The Definitive Guide to SQLite features one of the most excellent introductions to the relational model and to the Structured Query Language (SQL) that I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading. The C API is given a major chunk of the book of course, as it is therein that most of what SQLite has to offer takes place, but the other language bindings for Perl, Python, Ruby, Java, Tcl and PHP are also given a section each. From cover to cover, The Definitive Guide to SQLite is the perfect companion to SQLite!
