The book did help me get some basic ideas for how to begin a project that related to one of the author's, but didn't really explain the logic behind the design in a way that I could translate that information to other projects.
So I am back at Amazon, buying another book which, hopefully, will take me a bit further in what I need.
If you already know all the basics, cited above, and know how to create additional tables in a file then this book will walk you through setting up relationships and making productive use of them - sort of.
There is not enough stuff here for the pure beginner to get them up to speed so they can do the relational stuff, scripting, etc with any sense of confidence. For an experience FileMaker Pro user the book is a waste because you will learn very little here that is new.
If you are an Access developer, etc and already understand the world of relational databases then this will give you a quick primer in how to do similar things with FileMaker Pro.
The concept for this series of books is brilliant; however, the execution of the concept in this book sucks!
As a previous reviewer noted, this is not aimed at the novice.
To hard for new users, too basic for advanced users and just plain confusing for those in the middle.
