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 Access inside out! March 22 2004
John did a great job on this book. Like the title say's: Access inside out! Give's the most value vor beginners and experts for the most reasonable price i've seen for a long time. The book is perfecly structured, the examples are good and easy to understand. Starting with database-basics, You can read it to learn access as a beginner or use it as an expert "as a bible". Nearly 1300 pages full of access-power, including a cd with the examples. He touchs also real client-server-systems like sql-server with access as frontend. Easy to understand also for foreigners which do not have english as their primary language!

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars John Viescas hits another home run. March 22 2004
I've been looking forward to the release of this book because it's his first in the Microsoft Inside/Out series. I have all but 1 (the first book) of his books and find this one the best yet. He definitely lives up to the quality of the other books in the Inside/Out series.
John's Access books are especially informative because he is the only one of the Access book authors that I've found that truly teaches SQL. His sample files are original, not the same old rehash of the Northwind sample database that comes with Access.

1.0 out of 5 stars Having Problem to teach March 5 2004
This is clearly the case of someone who knows everything about the subject matter having a very hard time teaching it. The author developes two fictitious database projects and then your head starti spinning trying to follow what he is doing without him clearly explaining why he is doing it that way. Virginia Andersen's Book, Microsoft Office Access 2003: The Complete Refrence, is a far better book although it has been "rusdhed" and is nowhere on par with her Access 2000 book.
