Just to second DH's side recommendation, if you are ever hacking on
serious SQL, you want to read SQL for Smarties.

There are times in technology when you understand something so
completely that you don't need visualisation tools its just there in
your head. I believe Joe Celko has that for RDBMS'/SQL permanently.

His columns and books are fascinating, and for bonus points he looks
like Ming the Merciless[1].
