What’s your opinion of High Performance MySQL?
+0 Vote Up -1Vote Down

The second edition of High Performance MySQL has 27 reviews on Amazon, but the third edition only has 5 so far. By this point I assume many of you have a copy and have read it cover to cover. I’d really appreciate your reviews — when purchasing, people look not only at the star rating but at the number of reviews. You can create a review here. And thanks!

You can pre-order the new edition of High Performance MySQL now on Amazon or via O’Reilly’s website.

Eric Bergen called the second edition “the best MySQL book on the planet“. What will the third edition be called? The best in the solar system? This reminds me of a joke, supposed to be a …

Status update on High Performance MySQL
+4 Vote Up -0Vote Down

The third edition is nearly done. I’ve committed first drafts of all chapters, and all but one appendix. I need to do the last appendix and then rewrite the preface, which is a few days of work at my current pace. After that, it’s the usual tech review, copyediting, updates to figures, etc — and then it’s off to production.

I’m really pleased with this edition. I was planning on it just being a refresh of the second edition to reflect what’s new in MySQL-land, but it’s almost a complete rewrite. There’s a lot more focus on a logical approach throughout: what happens in the server, what are the limitations, why this matters, what …

Progress on High Performance MySQL 3rd Edition
+3 Vote Up -0Vote Down

A few people have asked me how it’s going, so I thought I’d just share it with everyone. Things are going great. I’m writing much more quickly than I thought I would be, and as a result I’m finding I have time to do more changes than I thought I could, which makes me happy. I should be finished drafting the chapters by the end of the year.

In particular, the faster than expected pace is giving me a chance to address one of the big weaknesses of the second edition. In many places, the second edition is a collection of facts and experiences. It says what and why, but it doesn’t convey a process or method, and it doesn’t teach …

Some of them were sold quite a while ago, and some are more recent. Portuguese was the first. I’m looking forward to learning all these languages (except for Spanish, which I already sort [...]

Update on High Performance MySQL, 2nd Edition

I just thought I’d drop a line about our book. Sales appear to be doing well still: the book is still at Amazon sales rank 3,213 and seems to hold pretty steady there. A lot of people have discovered it and are recommending it — including members of MySQL’s professional services team. [...]

High Performance MySQL 2nd Edition gets revised and translated
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Just thought I’d update you. We got quite a few good errata from readers, and I took a couple weekends and went through the book with a fine-toothed comb, catching typos and subtle errors that crept in at some point (TPC benchmarks were labeled as TCP benchmarks — did you catch that one?). I marked up my book and mailed it to O’Reilly, who went well above and beyond what they normally do for errata. Normally, once a book is in print they will fix only serious technical errors. They fixed everything, even going as far as rearranging page breaks and moving figures to improve readability.

The second printing is on …
