4.0 out of 5 stars Not bad...great for beginners, Feb. 10 2003
Overall, I thought that this was an above average book. Considering the fact that there really isn't all that much DB information (gathered it one place) out there, this book brings alot of key concepts together. The authors really take a programming language and put it on a beginner's level. They make relevant comparisons to today's popular games in their examples. The only complaint that I have is that they should have included more ground-up projects like first person shooters or fight sims. Most programming or database books usually have about three "real world" projects that take you from start to finish, all based on what was taught in the book. Basically, if you are a first-time Dark Basic developer, then you need to pick this book up. Otherwise, ask someone on the forums for help or source code.
