Good question.

I want a handy 'desk' reference with

a) Lots of examples
b) Easy to read and complete reference material

The reason is that I can't hold the details in my head (because I do not DBI
regularly) , but I need to keep knocking off dirty that little scripts that
run sql queries. I figure the easiest way for that is SQL via DBI rather
than an abstraction module.
