I'm not sure what you mean, that book isn't just an intro to SQL, it
discusses how to tune for performance, etc. It has quite a bit of
practical advice that you can tell came from hard-won experience by
the author. On the other hand, it's somewhat out of date by now and
it's Oracle-centered. Anyway it's online, you might spend a minute
looking at it to see if it's useful to you. It had sounded like the
type of thing you're asking for.

Erm, I can't really tell what you're asking for here; the application
simply makes database queries as needed.
