Being a computer science student I found it hard to understand the amount of theory behind Database Structures. This book provides very good guidance for solving non-trivial problems in storing complex data structures in a flat relational database. I found it very helpful and full of great ideas, which I have used in my web applications.

I had a project that used a tree structure to represent data and found this book invaluble in learning how to use nested sets.
I had previously used recursion to generate the trees but nested sets and SQL is so efficient a tree with many elements generates in next to no time.
Definitely worth the money

A poor book with many SQL errors. A confusing and arrogrant writing style. There is very little detail when you need it, Focuses too much on his nested sets representation. I doubt very many would use it given its complexity. I got absolutley nothing out of this book.

You are much better researching trees in SQL on the web.
