Creating your MySQL Database: Practical Design Tips and Techniques: A short guide for everyone on how to structure your data and set-up your MySQL database tables efficiently and easily.
Packt Publishing | November 25, 2006 | ISBN: 1904811302 | 108 pages | PDF | 6 MB
This book starts off with a real bang, working you through the logic of how you would structure your data in a MySQL database. It works through two examples, a car dealership's needs for tracking the details about particular cars and their sales, and then a simplistic schema for storing airline flight information. About halfway through this book, you feel like you're really learning a lot of information, and then the second half just seems to mainly cough out some table definitions. I can't quite put my finger on exactly what went wrong about halfway through, but that's about the point where I felt like I stopped learning from this book and was just reading the remainder of what the author wanted to get regurgitated before he hit his page limit.
You probably won't come away from reading this book with any more confidence in your ability to structure the tables of a database than before you started reading it. Some good info. Overall - disappointing.
