Topic Coverage: The title is an ordered listing of topic coverage quality, depth and enthusiasm. Design >> App Dev > Admin.
The book is, without exception, overly verbose; however, the more detailed breakdown is...
- SQL: 3/5 Required intro for a book of this sort but better covered in any number of O'Reilly etc books.
- ER diagrams: 5/5 Best I've read but I'm not sure if ER diagrams are really a topic to hang one's hat on.
- Scheme design: 4/5 Well covered but a futile topic to teach IMHO, requires first hand failures to learn.
- Normalization: 5/5 Really belongs in this book between set theory and practitioner texts on RDMSs.
- Views, triggers & procedures: 2/5 contrived examples that either suggest shoving the whole application into the DB or skipping these key features.
- Admin: 3/5 Not bad but more quickly and less expensively available in O'Reilly etc books.
Biggest Complaint: Strangely CS phobic in its lack of rigor which is unacceptable given its length and price.
Bottom line: A fine book, even a good book if you are looking for a middle ground text. Its strengths slant more towards schema design than DB dev or admin.
On the Chapter 3 assignment for example there are TWO number 7's. One is hidden inside of 6.
I would highly not recommend this book.
