Some archeologist will find my first two editions of High Performance MySQL and wonder why I stored so many Post-It notes and wrote some many notes in them. I picked up the first edition at a MySQL Conference in Orlando and was impressed. The second edition was more impressive when it appeared a few years later. Now the third edition has come off the presses.
The third edition is bigger, badder, and covers all the updates while retaining the easy to read style from the previous editions. This book has become as ‘must have’ reference for MySQL DBAs. And yes you need one on your desk ASAP.
