This really is the missing manual. The book is clearly laid out and takes you section by section through the software. It enables you to set up your database and get it to do what you want it to do.. Written in plain English with a dash of humour, it makes for a pleasant read. It is a weighty tome so it takes a while to get through it. However, it doesn't cut corners. It is well indexed so you can jump around to find instructions that you might need at any one time. The main plus is the clarity of the text. You do not need any prior knowledge of database design to be able to work through the software with the book alongside to guide you. Excellent value.
I was asked to work on Filemaker with no prior training/help. Did get some help from my colleague though! But this manual taught me so many tricks to do the same job much quickly. It is worth in every way and the author's humour makes it much more interesting to read the book.
