"For the novice, this book gives sage advice on the performance issues of SQL-level logical database design that cuts across all systems. For me at least, the physical database design was particularly interesting, because the book presents the implications of design choices on IBM, Oracle, and Microsoft systems. These systems are quite different internally, and the book's example will surprise even the systems' implementers." - Jim Gray, Microsoft "Shasha and Bonnet prove the value of applying timeless principles to everchanging technology. The unique wealth of practical ideas, facts, and examples equip database practitioners "in the trenches" like no other resource. Chapter 2 alone is worth the price of the book." - Bob Badour, Online Curmudgeon
