Use SQL to get the data you need in no time at all! Learn to read and write basic queries, troubleshoot common problems, and control your own business data in just 24 short lessons–no programming experience required!

Structured Query Language (SQL) is the standard way to get specific datasets out of large relational databases.

In just a few quick lessons, you can learn to write your own queries, modify existing SQL statements, and add a new superpower to your bag of tricks.

Learn SQL in a Month of Lunches introduces you to the most useful parts of SQL for business data analysis. This practical book gives you instantly-useful techniques starting from the first short chapter. 25-year SQL veteran Jeff Iannucci makes SQL a snap through hands-on lab exercises, relevant code examples, and easy-to-understand language.

about the technology

For decades, Structured Query Language has been the standard way to talk to relational databases. Unlike many programming languages, SQL is easy to read and understand once you get the hang of it. You don’t need to be a data scientist—or even a tech professional—to master the most powerful features. For business data analysts, learning SQL empowers you to create better reports, uncover market insights, and freely explore large databases on your own.

about the book

In Learn SQL in a Month of Lunches you’ll learn how to use SQL to retrieve, filter, and analyze your data—and more. 24 short, friendly lessons introduce you to SQL using examples and exercises built around the tasks you’ll do on the job. You’ll start writing real SQL queries immediately. And don’t worry if you’ve never tried to use a programming language before. SQL reads a lot like English! You’ll soon be up to speed with one of the most sought-after skills in today’s marketplace.
