For the information, good, short, to the point.

The title explains it all. This is informative into a technical aspect of databases. I was just learning union statements. I'll give it a second listen.

No accompanying material included

I only listened to the very beginning since the audiobook reffers the accompanying PDF file that isn't provided together with the book. The description doesn't mention that there is a PDF file included, but this situation discouraged me so much that it was the first book that I returned on Audible.
