The textbook is a little challenging to read BUT The book is written very well -- things are defined very clearly, albeit a bit dry.
I had no prior experience with any programming so I was also in worse shape than most, but managed to master the database jungle with SQL & the help of the book...
Great starting point for those learning Data Modeling and DB - I'd say one of the few textbooks out there that are worth holding on to.
definitely recommend this book to whoever is studying database right now!
