In addition to poor stylistic taste, this book often fails to instruct the student on fundamentals of database principles by skipping vital steps in closure algorithms or normalization rules. If this is a "first book," then the authors should assume nothing about their reader's knowledge of database principles and not skip steps when explaining an algorithm for the first time.
