I wish I'd read this book years ago. I found it laugh outloud funny in places; sorry to the folk who were shareing the quiet coach!

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good., 16 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Elements of Style (Paperback)
A good read if you wish to improve your composition. I liked the author's forthrightness, "downright bad English;". My review was too succinct therefore I have had to write this, please ignore.


Inside Relational Databases with Examples in Access
Inside Relational Databases with Examples in Access
by Mark Whitehorn
Edition: Paperback
Price: £24.50

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't be put off by the "Examples in Access", 30 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you would like to learn how relational databases work I recommend this book. The style is to keep things clear and simple and not to confuse and clutter with jargon. Given the subject this is quite an achievement and leaves you the reader in no doubt that you do actually understand what you are reading.

There is also enough content to let you talk confidently in database circles, most folk will nod knowingly when you mention normalization but they will change the subject rapidly when you mention Codd's rules. :-)

So a brilliant book if you are starting out but probably something for you if you have been working with databases for a while. Don't be put off by the "Examples in Access" this book now has pride of place on my desk alongside Black Belt Oracle 12 for Ninjas and Higher Principles of Data Integration! Any snide comments about Access are quickly dealt with by "Ah but it is about relational engines not Access" and they scurry off.
