1.0 out of 5 stars DO NOT BUY 12 Sept. 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The language if the book is very difficult to understand. Most of the mathematical conclusions are just stated without any proper explanation. I would not recommend this book to anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enlightening 30 Nov. 2007
By Roald Andresen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
A very enlightening and comprehensive book.
It explains the principles of query processing in a way that makes it understandable both for rookies and for old-timers.

Btw.: The print in my copy is clear and sharp.

3.0 out of 5 stars Blur printing 16 Sept. 2005
By chayant - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The quality of print is somewhat low. It looks like all pages are printed by inkjet printer. Cover page is somewhat blur. The text is not sharpyly printed. I don't think this is acceptable for a $80 textbook. Anyway, it's a good query processing textbook.
