Don't waste your money, Nov. 14 2002
This is a terrible book. It is completely unfocused. It moves from topic to topic without any worthwhile detail about any specific topic. Concepts are not adequately explained -- either you already understand the topics in this book, in which case you don't need this book; or you don't already understand the topics in this book, in which case this book will not help you understand them. If you want to learn about database design, buy a good book on that subject (for example, Hernandez). If you want to learn about object-oriented design, buy a good book on that subject. If you want to learn about writing requirements, buy a good book on that subject. It is ridiculous for the first reviewer to suggest that this book teaches anything useful about writing requirements. Don't waste your money on this book - it's completely useless.
