The book does a great job of explaining all phpMyAdmin’s features and configuration options. It’s easy to read, contains a lot of examples and screen shots and explains the topics in a logical order. Because it focuses on configuration also, I think the book will appeal to both the end users, database administrators and system administrators.
Marc Delisle has written this book as a tightly focused tutorial that is as successful at guiding its readers along its stated path as it is at avoiding the common pratfall of straying off target. I heartily recommend this book to anybody who might use phpMyAdmin, whether for the visual interaction with MySQL or for the advanced features.
