MySQL (3rd Edition) (Developer's Library)
Paul DuBois

March 10, 2005
Paperback

Book Review
The unexpected pleasure of reading books about databases is that they are often written by authors with highly organized minds. Paul DuBois and his editors at New Riders have assembled MySQL with a clarity and lucidity that inspires confidence in the subject matter: a (nearly) freely redistributable SQL-interpreting database client/server primarily geared for Unix systems but maintained for Windows platforms as well.

DuBois's tome isn't free either, but its list price is modest in light of its value and the value of its namesake.

Database Design for Mere Mortals: A Hands-On Guide to Relational Database Design
Michael J. Hernandez
0201752840
March 2003
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
Programmers and software architects don't really make a conscious decision to design an application (particularly one with online exposure) around the three-tier model-view-controller design pattern anymore. Three-tier, largely because of its adaptability and stability, is the norm. All of which means you need a database to underpin each of your applications. Designing your databases correctly can make the difference between slow-running, complicated code and software that's speedy, modular, and easy to work with. Database Design for Mere Mortals prepares someone with only a passing familiarity with databases for the important job of building the persistence layer (also called the data model) for software.

Michael Hernandez explains database design in tradesman's terms. That is, he shows his readers how to identify the...
