"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

If you're taking a databases class and are struggling, this is a good and cheap book to cross reference with professor lectures and required text readings.
The website the book mentions I dont think could be any worse. It really would not be that hard to setup the databases or at least the schemas on a website or include a CD or a download to help take care of this. This makes the book a little more useless due to the fact the website is horrid.
I would avoid this book unless you are required to use it for a class.
While the book does a good job covering relational databases, other types aren't sufficiently covered. For example, XML seems to be an afterthought, with extremely limited coverage. The network and hierarchical models are online only, key-value and document oriented databases are not well covered, and I'm not sure Graph Databases are even mentioned.
Also, while out of scope dependencies are covered, such as RAID, actual database related topics are ignored. For example, there is no dedicated security section.
The coverage of tuple calculus and relational algebra is acceptable.
The actual manufacturing quality is poor of the physical book. Some of the pages have very faded ink.
