Format: Hardcover
This book offers NOTHING helpful to anyone who already has the Informix documentation. It tries to cover a lot of ground without going into any detail. Very disappointing, especially compared to the other books in the "... Unleashed" series.

This book is a great resource. It's not one to read cover to cover, but rather one to turn to when you have a question. It's helped me at work in critical situations.

Excellent 24 July 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
For someone who is new to Informix but has experience with other RDBMS's, this book is just what is needed.
It overviews the Informix product line and gives detailed instructions for various tasks such as using ontape to perform a backup, understanding the onconfig parameters and much more.
This book lives up to the UNLEASHED! family name.
Thanks!

Well worth the time it takes to read it 5 July 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I'm primarily a developer, but I also do a little bit of DBA stuff. This book has lots of info for developers, and apparently lots for DBAs too -- it's the book our primary DBA recommended to me. If you need to know something about Informix, chances are it's explained in this book.

lots of technical tips from experts ! 5 Nov. 1998

OK, but not to the usual standard of the "Unleashed" series 5 July 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The book is organised into many topic-specific chapters, written by quite a number of different authors. The quality of the content and prose is therefore rather variable, and some subjects are covered to different depths by different authors, giving a rather disjointed feel. However most people, even Informix professionals, will find some things of value in this book.
The book comes with a CD-ROM containing a example scripts/SQL etc: these vary from the trivial to the very useful.
Some sections, noticeably that on Tech Support, are next to useless to non-US readers, containing as they do information only applicable to that country. It leaves the impression the editors were either too ignorant or, more likely, too lazy to consider the fact that this is supposed to be an international publication.
