Mike, take a look at "SQL: The Complete Reference" by Groff and Weinberg. It's a little old now, so you may be able to pick it up cheap somewhere. It covers the logic and syntax of ANSI SQL with lots of examples. Useful as a basic reference.

Subject: SQL for Normal People
One of our programmers is well above the "SQL for Dummies" level, but found
Joe Celko's "SQL for Smarties: Advanced SQL Programming" to be a little too
daunting in places (as do I, for that matter). Anybody have any good book
recommendations for something in between? Note that the interest is in SQL
in general, not necessarily that which is SAS-specific.
