The intended audience for this book isn't someone who just needs to use a Microsoft Access Database. Instead, this book is for someone who knows Access basics and understands databases and wants to create their own database - or perhaps their own application - including possibly using Visual Basic programming or macros. If this is you, then this book is GREAT! Doesn't bother you with the tiny details, but gives you what you need to get moving on your project, including how to prevent users from tinkering with your form design, how to fine tune your database/application using the performance analyzer, and other ideas to put together a high-quality database or application. (The reason why some reviewers have rated the book lower, is that they were probably outside the targeted audience, and the material was therefore less appropriate for them.)

5.0 out of 5 stars This Is A Really Big Book! March 24 2004
As the review title says, this is a big book - one that is chockful of tips, examples and code (on the included CD) that will reveal the power and ease-of-use that Microsoft Access 2003 possesses. As another reviewer stated, the examples are not the same, old tired Northwind database but fresh and exciting looking examples created by the author. Everyone - from beginner to advanced users - will find something in this book. And the big plus is the SQL information in the book and on the CD.
This book is well thought out, well written and, well, just a darn good buy. I don't think you can go wrong with this one. I know that I won't.

By Wayne
John has done a great job with this book. It is in plain language that a beginner in Access would be able to understand. It includes lots of screen shots and descriptions of why things need to be done the recommended way. It also has good technical detail for the more advanced user. Following the procedures in this book will definitely improve your database application.

4.0 out of 5 stars Details about a detailed software March 23 2004
By A Customer
This book contains numerous, very detailed compilations of information about ACCESS features, with solid examples of how the features work and how to use them in a database. Consistent with the power of ACCESS, it covers many topics that the novice and the mid-level ACCESS user will find useful and educational. An excellent book for learning new things or reminding yourself of things that you once knew and need to look up again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Something for everyone March 23 2004
By Duane
The Inside Out book is a great reference and more. I have been creating applications in Access since version 1.1. I think new users will find what they are looking for to get started and seasoned developers will be able to learn from deeper discussions into PivotTables, client-server & Access Data Projects, and more. John makes great use of the inside covers with FAQs and Tips. The included CD has the samples and code as well as many extras.
