Title: Database Design for Mere Mortals: A Hands-On Guide to Relational Database Design, Second Edition
Publisher: Addison-Wesley Professional
Authors: Michael J. Hernandez
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
Practical and dogmatic, just like database should be...

This is the BEST book there is for learning about DB design from the ground up. It moves very quickly from theory to how to practically implement a robust DB design. It assumes no knowledge, but by the end of the book you WILL be able to sit in discussions with MIS and understand and contribute to the discussion. I don't want to leave the impression, however, that this skips the hard topics: far from it. It covers Business Rules and even has some excellent forms that you can copy from the book and use in your information-gathering sessions.
Bottom Line: Get this book and get the big picture, then get the specialized book for your DBMS.

It will change the way you visualize a printed page

This, and other Robin Williams books will not only change the way you create printed documents, it will change the way you evaluate a printed page. In a clear, concise, and informative style, you'll learn the principles of good design. Another distinguishing plus is that this book is a joy to read. The majority of desktop publishing books are written by designers who need training in writing; this is certainly not the case here. A must-have, along with "The Mac/PC Is Not A Typewriter" and her other books.

This book should be on all developers desks!

It is short. It is comprehensive. It is good.
Come with effective examples (most being short implementation of famous UNIX commands), exercises (solutions in an other book by different authors) and a reference manual.
The only one book to have for C programming, by its authors.
