Points about book are as follow

Book is well written and very concise.
Explains each and every DBMS concepts in very details.
Each chapter has exercises at end.
The exercises are divided into two sets: practice exercises and exercises. The solutions for the practice exercises are publicly available at book's website.
SQL syntaxes used in this book are standard SQL language and do not follow any specific DBMS such as oracle or Microsoft SQL Server.
There are lots of diagrams, tables and real life examples in book for better explanation.
Case studies are good way to explain some real life problems.
Case studies section is missing MySQL database system, which is surprised for me.
