There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
My only real criticisms are:
1. That he did not go enough into effectively indexing, applying primary/foreign keys, and applying constraints.
2. There was not enough discussion of the various "normalized" forms, when they should be used, and so forth. This is covered in a "flyover" manner that makes sense, but perhaps a more "in-depth" discussion of normalized forms is beyond the scope of the book.
I felt like I knew most of the information, but I didn't feel this book was a waste of money, as many of his "common sense" approaches I will utilize in my own DB designs in the future.
I am fearlessly ready to apply all I have read here. That feels so empowering. Imagine the usefulness of the content, tv show, social media or book to come to your life and then give you the expertise to effect meaningful change. This book is that for me. We need reasons to enjoy life. To find a purpose and apply oneself in the work you believe able to dedicate oneself deeply to is a gift. I appreciate the author tremendously in his work.
This book does not get into normalization or any details, which I liked.

I found an interesting read on the data integrity, at multiple levels.
The book is only about logical data-base design.
Die Methode von Michael J. Hernandez finde ich überaus gut, zumal die Normalisierung bereits in den Arbeitsschritten enthalten ist, die er Schritt für Schritt im Detail erklärt.
The methodology put forth by Mr Hernandez, breaks db design down to its core steps. He then rearranges those steps in a way that make db design an attainable step-by-step process.
