I'll have to say, I'd have to think long and hard before I would embark on designing a database. It's so much easier to just work with what you have and hassle a DBA to fix it for you.

This book does give you a very clear, factual way to go about the process of designing a database.
Simple to read, practical and straightforward. ideal to start with Database Design.

Tables, tables, tables. Good table design makes for a good database!
I'm a non-techie and I managed to read and understand this entire book--I think that's quite a feat for a technical textbook.
Nice primer written for the layman. Now if I could only put this material into practice!
