Helpful but verbose 3 Nov. 2014
By Brad773 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was looking for a good book on database design and didn't find many choices. Davidson's folksy, conversational tone might be appreciated by some. For me, the writing in this book is generally verbose and could have been tightened up and dramatically improved by a good editor. Poor font choices IMHO and I found many typos as well. So not a pleasurable reading experience, as for example with Ben-Gan's books.

That said, there are some interesting and useful perspectives offered here. I downloaded the code from Davidson's site. It would have been nice if some of the thousands of words in the book had instead appeared in the code as step-by-step documentation and explanation, but I had no problems running any of the scripts that I was interested in.

Useful book with kindle formatting issues 12 Nov. 2013
By Yet another music geek - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I've been reading this book as a general review and as an intro to SQL-Server specific design considerations, since I've been an Oracle DBA since the Dark Ages. It's a well-written, straight-forward book that I believe complete beginners could also jump into and get a lot out of. My one quibble is that in the Kindle version, formatting issues make some examples unclear.

Great Book. 31 Jan. 2013
By David Venegoni - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Having just begun developing SQL relational databases, this book does an excellent job of covering all areas of RDBMS's. The book is written very conversationally, which makes it very easy to follow, but there may be too much filler for some. I highly recommend it, regardless.
