On the plus side, the author understands B-Trees and labors to explain them. This is the first author that actually mentions pages used within the b-tree, and this b-tree is presented in a real example, not just an example in memory.
The example program is a personal informational manager (PIM) called ROBIN. And the author introduces topics while building the program, in an attempt to give the reader a real-life application for the code written from the exercises. This PIM application is implemented in a command-line environment.
The author focuses on ANSI standard C++, and the code can be used on a variety of platforms. This book provides a lot of usable source and examples, but unfortunately few programmers will need to implement their own indexed flat files.
Interesting read. The author also lightly touches on design concepts, and offers some advice.
What is NOT covered: GUI, STL, advanced polymorphism, MFC collection classes, or Microsoft specific technology.
