    This books teaches how to build a solid, professional database

    Most database books that I have seen focus on specific database management system software (SQL Server, MySQL, Oracle), SQL syntax, or ADO.NET. This book teaches you the steps to building a solid database, and it does not matter which database software you use. The underlying rules of creating databases are universal. You will, however, need to learn your database software and SQL syntax. I recommend getting familiar with your software and SQL, and then master the steps of building a solid, professional database using this book.
