Lynn,
The above post is on behalf of the book promo team.

Now as myself and as one of the moderators of this forum: I can't believe how many posts we had about your book. The level of excitement was overwhelming.

Good luck on book sales. I can tell we have lots of interested people here! Even though I already know SQL, I plan to look at this book for entertainment value. HF books are fun to read!

and thanks for the author for their time and replying on ranchers queries,

It's been a pleasure. And I've gotten a list of topics that might work for an advanced book out of it. Sorry, it won't be open source, and it won't cover object oriented SQL (to be honest, I didn't know there was an OO SQL, and I couldn't find any useful information on it). But I do have some great ideas for a future advanced SQL book. Maybe after my current one is finished...

Thanks again, it's been a pleasure!

I'm commenting here instead of the thread where this was originally discussed because I don't see the original. I think it is called OOQL (object oriented query language.) I used it with Jasmine - an object oriented database. As this is a different language, I wouldn't expect it to be in a SQL book. Just like I wouldn't expect JPA's query language to be there.
