I understand this is a tough subject to explain in a textbook, but the author doesn't really define many of the key terms or properly explain some of the concepts. Instead, the text relies on examples to do the teaching. For example, if the book contains section on what a database is, it never actually says "A database can be defined as....." or anything like that. It says something to the extent of "And what is a database? Well if we look at the example below we can see that the information on Acme Company represents a database." Very difficult to follow and required lots of looking up terms and cross referencing information with other sources.

This book went over the basic principles of database management. Some of the material is outdated but the basic SQL commands are still relevant.

Most of the material here can be found online for free in various MYSQL documentation however, this book does a good job of providing examples and builds upon them from beginning to end.

Browsing through it, it looks like it has some good information in it. There are some charts that help you understand the concepts and review questions to help you study for tests.
