A terrific tool for the I.T. developer

The Data Model Resource Book is as important to a data modeler or application developer as a dictionary is to a writer: you're not at your best without it. Where I've worked, this material has helped me create the architecture for an enterprise data model of our company. Aided by the Resource Book, we build a framework of major tables containing subject areas and the result is a business model to which we can map all of our application databases and data warehouses.
This book is basically rather simple to use; you find the data or subject of interest and then check to see if there are any attributes or relationships in the book that are relevant to your specific application database. This type of a check helps add quality and completeness to your logical and physical model.
But using the book just scratches the surface of its value; it's the author who's responsible for its quality and completeness. I've personally worked with Mr. Silverston who participated in consulting engagements at our firm and I`ve also seen him perform in the classroom setting. He seems to have an uncanny ability to analyze a given business situation-no matter how seemingly bizarre-and to create a model structure that will accommodate any situation.
I highly recommend the Resource Book to business analysts, application developers, programmers, and data warehouse designers.

good course text book

I have used this book in a course and believe it was very thorough in its desriptions and applications. The topics were ordered very nicely and were connected together appropriately. The figures in the book were very helpful in illustrating the concepts that the book was trying to portray.

Cool book, I found it very useful

This book is VERY well written and VERY readable. I needed other sources to get an actual driver written (see Chris Cant's book) but only because this book gives a much more complete picture and I needed something more specific. That's my point...if you want a good, solid understanding of the system and an excellent reference, get this book. It's not often one finds technical-minded people with such writing skill.
