For beginners only!

I don't know why other people thought this book was so revolutionary. It is a fine introduction to fields, tables and relations including basic diagramming but it is written in a tiresome way for someone who already knows the basics - It devotes a lot of ink to fake dialogs between the database developer and users. "You: ..oh so you really only provide the actual information for two data items on this form...who provides the other information? User: Well, that would be Billy down the hall.." etc

Decent but could use some work

This book has a thorough overview of PSP 8. Plus, it takes you step-by-step and in plain English through some advanced features. I have bought two other books on PSP 8 and have used PSP 7 for two years. This book is better than the other two and a keeper!

The Best book for J2EE app development

I chose this book because it was the No.1 best-selling book at amazon and I was not disappointed. In fact, this is one of the best architecture cum programming books I've read. This book breaks down the j2ee architecture and explains every concept from beginning to end.
The author is really a great teacher. You'll be amazed on how clear he explains things. Examples work straight away and easy to run.
For me, this is really "THE" book for J2EE.
