A very many years ago I was trying to bootstrap into SQL/database programming via C++. Well, in order for a quick start I got one of those books in the series "_______ programming in 30 days", later to eventually become "in 24 hours".

Well, the damn book only talked in terms of FoxPro. Finally, I actually emailed the author and it turns out the nitwit only knew FoxPro ! The later titles, where 30 days became 24 hours says more than I could.

Apparently, one didn't need any more knowledge to write a book than to know a publisher.
