Is this book for the beginners as well?. I mean can anyone use this book to start from the scratch or you need some basic knowledge of SQL before starting with this book

Yes, you can start from the scratch, no need for more knowledge of SQL concepts.

This book is for you if

1. You are new to SQL. Do you want to learn, understand, and remember how
to create tables, databases, and write queries using the best and most recent standards?

2. You know SQL, but you would like a refresher, and never quite understood normal forms and one-to-many and left outer joins, this book can help you
