Maybe I am not smart enough to read at Celko's level but the book kept losing me with all of its wordy distractions. I kept thinking to myself, "ok get to the point already". Overall I did like the underlying message of getting out of the row by row processing and moving to a set based approach when manipulation data. I just found the book hard to read.

I recommend this book. I'll use it in my databases classes. I own all Celko's books, and I think this is the best written by him.

"Or whatever" is actually a quote from page 11 of this book. Draw your own conclusions as to the author's attitude; I know that I myself will NEVER AGAIN buy a book from this author.
