As a remark on its age, the concepts in this book have been made real to the industry over time since it was first published. Consider the case in point that this book gives a detailed example of as called in the book "hypothetical relations". If you think this is "OLD TECHNOLOGY" or "PIE IN THE SKY" then you should look at the ORACLE database (not INGRES), as hypothetical relations are the foundation of what we know in the Oracle world as "Oracle Workspace Manager". Many in the Oracle community know what Workspace Manager is, but few know how it actually works. This book gives you the theory behind it albeit with a different name. Oracle does not tell these kinds of details about their products. Hmm... not so outdated maybe.
