"My favourite part by far is the multitude of examples and the in-depth explanations. Each chapter has a set of exercises and the answers are in the back, making it a great study book. I'd definitely recommend this to anyone tired of reading a dry database theory book or wants to know more about how SQL works behind the scenes."
-- Matthew Bates, Compsoc Book Reviews

"I found the book an enjoyable read and I think that most professionals involved with relational databases would find something new in it. I’d recommend it."

"SQL and Relational Theory is devoted to relational theory and explaining why SQL is not relationally complete. Author will guide you through various topics from the relational modeling and show how SQL is limited in a way. At some point this is interesting but will left you with a felling that you have to stick to practices derived from particular implementation of the SQL while at the same time you will be aware of it's limitations in relational sense."
