I would suggest this book to people who are not dealing everyday in db-areas. It's a full starting compendium on db theory, technology, design methodology. The arguments are not deeply explained in detail, but the aim of the book is to give the big picture view. The didactical approach is well organized during the exposition and fulfilled with many examples. The language style adopted is easy, the graphical design gives a soft perception of heavy-weighted arguments. The explanation follows a practical way with few formalism applied even if the scientific rigour is always mantained. I would recommend this book to people who are novice to db world or as a reference in the bookshelf for all IT professionals.

Comprehensive - that is the first word that comes to my mind after reading the book Database Systems: A Practical Approach to Design, Implementation and Management. If you are in search of a book that will help you in mastering the subject of Database Management Systems this is it. The coverage is exhaustive and in-depth. While reading the table of contents and preface, I thought that the authors were very ambitious in the scope and are promising too much. But after reading the book, I am glad to say that I was mistaken - the authors have very successfully delivered whatever they have promised and more.
The book is ideal for a student of database management systems. It is also a valuable book for the practicing professional. In fact the people, who are in the database profession, who uses databases or develop applications involving database management systems, will find this book invaluable and will be able to appreciate it much more than a beginner. It is a connoisseur's delight.
The authors assume nothing. Each and every concept is built from scratch. The level of detail is so impressive that one can think this book as a collection of books of various database-related topics. For example, the section on SQL is so comprehensive that, it can stand on its own as a separate book. Such detailed coverage is found for all the topics in the book and is one of its best features. The case studies, worked examples and the presentation style, the concepts in boxes, excellent illustration, review questions, etc. will go a long way in improving the usefulness of the book.
Another feature that makes this book stand out form other books on database management, is its coverage of the latest technologies. The chapters of Distributed Database Management, Object-Oriented and Object-Relational Database Management Systems, Web based database applications, Data Warehousing, OLAP and Data Mining, etc. will prove invaluable to the students as well as the practitioners, novices as well as experts.
When dealing with theoretical concepts like data modeling, normalization, it is the usual practice of most authors either to go too mathematical or to gloss over the subject. This book is by far the best in this respect as it takes an optimum approach. The explanations are not too mathematical, but the topics are explained in sufficient detail, so that the reader will have a very good understanding of the concepts like normalization, functional dependency, etc.
Four most useful features of this book are the logical organization chart (suggesting the various paths that one can follow), the references, the suggested readings and the index. When reading or studying a book of this size - 1093 pages - these features are quite invaluable.
The usefulness of the book could have been improved if an electronic version was provided. It would have made references easy. Also the Deductive database model is not covered. An appendix on the database related sites on the Internet would have been nice. Also a description of the major database systems and vendors could have been included.
So in the final analysis, this is a must read and must have book for every database professional. For students it is a valuable course material. For professionals it is a very good self-study guide. For practitioners it an excellent refresher and a good way to keep track of the latest developments in the database field. An excellent buy!

This book will take you from the basics to advanced. Covers tons of stuff (actual page count is over 1000 pp): basic and adv SQL, query tuning, database design, security, ODBC, object oriented databases, distributed systems, relational algebra, security, OLAP and datawarehousing. Its coverage is not skimpy or superficial either. The design chapters are excellent - especially if you're a professional and don't just hack together databases. Also, I found this book easy to read. You won't have to reread stuff because it's poorly written.

I used this book to teach a course in Database Systems. I thought it gave the best presentation of typical database topics that I have ever seen. I believe that data modeling is the essence of database and this book has more chapters on database design than any other five database books combined. The chapter on normalization was at just the right level. At the same time, the book is one of the few to acknowledge the need for denormalization.
These authors have clearly been practitioners. It shows throughout the book.

I looked at a number of books on database theory, and found this to be the best. By far. It covers the relational calculus quickly and easily, and on the other end of the spectrum covers examples from the most broken-down type of database, Microsoft Access. And in the middle, it covers concepts relating to application programming to the politics of XML support as intermediary between different databases.
Beautiful book, good editors.

I had to read this book as part of my course at university, and though one shouldn't really enjoy it, i found it a useful tool not only for my studies but also for further reading, it covered a great deal of information which proved invaluable. It was simple enough to learn from and informative enough to be used after your studies...in short a masterpiece of database literature.

I really enjoyed giving a course based on this book. It is thorough and covers the full range of topics about databases, from design to issues about implementation and tuning. This book is not only good as course material, but also because it is excellent as a reference book, with many guidelines and lists on how to perform things, again from design to implementation.

This book will teach you everything you need to know about databases from start to finish. The SQL sections have everything from the basics to more advanced queries. You really get more bang for your buck with this book!

Use a database application before you read this. It's quantitive learning, but still know database basics before you dig into this one...
