It is a very good book for readers who have no prior knowledge of databases. The writers have arranged the chapters in a very systematic manner that enables you to gradually get a grasp of the subject. In fact the book would also prove good for readers who may have worked on DBMS softwares but not really knowing the "theory of databases". Excellent book for developing your database concepts - concepts that go a long way. A perfect book to be used as a text book in schools. The section on "Design Techniques" is something you would find yourself refering back to even when you're implementing real world systems.

I originally purchased this book for a class in database design. It's one of the few books I go back to. It has a lot of theory and depending if you are looking for something purely practical it may not be the best choice. But if you want to learn the reasons behind the rules or like having as much detail as you want then this is a great book. I have designed databases with it as my primary reference. I think every serious data modeler should have read it.

Format: Hardcover
Though this contains a good overview of database systems it is an extreamly complex and hard-to-read book. I studied 3 modules of learning about database systems while I was at university and the lecturer for every single one recommended this book.
If your looking for a book with a lot of clear diagrams and information on databases thats straight-to-the-point this isn't the book for you. A much better introduction to databases is "Database Systems: A Practical Approach to Design, Implementation and Management (International Computer Science S.)
Carolyn Begg, Thomas Connolly".
Whenever I read any part of this book it would make me more confused about the topic than I was already. If your a student and your considering buying this book I would definatly recommend getting it out your library first and seeing if you like the writing style before spending all that money on it.
