5.0 out of 5 stars A great book for an unbeaten price Aug. 24 2014

I came across this book while searching for a textbook for my introductory course to DB. This book is of an extreme value. It is a comprehensive reference for traditional relational data modeling and SQL and also contains updated advanced material on data mining, natural language processing, visualization and big data.

What I also like about the book is that it blends theory and practice of data modeling and SQL. Each chapter in the first part of the book starts with a data modeling concept (i.e. single entity, one-many, many-many etc...) and then shows how to implement it and perform queries with SQL.

The companion website includes all slides, datasets, and partial solutions of the exercises. All of that for $10 with Kindle, I can't ask for more. This is a must for database students and practitioners as well.
5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect database book for generalists March 10 2014

I use this book, and have done so for years, in an MSc course for students from all sciences that want to acquire literacy on database design and SQL. The students like it and it allows them to work quite independently, having both a lesurely pace and enough depth. The author keeps it up to date, too.
It's not at its strongest as a reference; but since SQL versions differ and change, that might be too much to ask.
3.0 out of 5 stars It was okay Jan. 30 2014

The book was okay. Was helpful, but the format was a little too wordy at times. I think the kindle version needs some tweeks actually. some improvement on the laptop app would be nice.
5.0 out of 5 stars Data Management for the Masses Oct. 25 2013

I used an earlier (hardback) version of this text in grad school.
The e-version is still a great read for understanding the basics of data management as well as a handy reference for some of the more challenging SQL tasks.
