Woo-hoo!
It's here! We just got our advance copies in the O'Reilly office, which means copies should be arriving in bookstores within the next two weeks (depending on where you are)...

I'm a big fans of Head First series. Does this book contain the advanced SQL?

By the way, there is also Head First C#. Man, I love being a geek

Anyone has got any news on this? I tried contacting some local stores here for this book but they said that are unaware if such a book exists...

As i am also *not very sure* about the availability of the book, but i predict it may take a couple of months i guess.

Anyways, let me check with some of the booksellers whom i know and get back.

I read the first chapter from the book and it looks amazing. I'm just waiting for the book to hit the shelves here in India. Anyone has any inkling on it?

Finally I got the book. It's interesting to read. Though it starts out very basic, the text looks interesting to read. Thanks authors and Head First for such a wonderful book.

I got my copy too . What really impressed me, was the respect paid by Dan Tow, author of O'Reilly's SQL Tuning who himself is highly recommended by the Hibernate guys and POJOs in Action author Chris Richardson.

Cheers
