    Excellent for nontechnical users

    A very well done text that avoids a lot of the mathematical jargon in the field. No set theory. No predicate calculus. This book is about the logical design of databases for someone who has never done that before. The tasks here are independent of any actual SQL software, and you do not need to know any SQL either. This is ostensibly a computer book. But interestingly enough, you do not need a computer to do anything it describes. From an object-oriented view, if that is your background, the author has done a skilful job of separating the design methodology from any software implementation or environment. It is also useful if you are not from a computing background, but you need to know what your technical coworkers, subordinates or the people in the department next door do when they maintain databases. Ok. The author does not discuss issues like transaction processing. But that is off-topic. Here, with a few hours reading, you can get the essence of database design.
