"...the book is a recommended read for all the database practitioners and other related professionals looking to match their implementations with the theoretical concepts and hence improving usability of the relational database model implemented within the enterprise."

"One of the founding fathers of relational databases has made the theory accessible to every DBA in SQL and Relational Theory. For years I've wished that more practicing DBAs would understand the relational theory I learned while getting my Master's Degree; now I can just refer them to this book!"
-- Sheeri K. Cabral, Database Team Lead and MySQL Evangelist

"If you want some fascinating, and sometimes difficult to grasp background and theory that will likely make you a better database wizard, this book is likely to help you get there...There are excellent examples of SQL code throughout the book, great discussions of the mathematics behind the genesis of relational theory, and more. Beware, though, you may have to work to understand it, but it will be worthwhile for those who do."
-- Matthew Helmke, MatthewHelmke.net

"While the book deals throughout with relational theory (as is obvious from the title), it deals with it in a very practical way showing you how to apply it so as to get the greatest benefit from its use - logically consistent databases. "
-- Stephen Chapman, Ask Felgall

"If you are a database professional who knows SQL reasonably well and wants to learn both more about SQL as well as gain a firm foundation on the principles of relational theory then I wholeheartedly, very highly recommend SQL And Relational Theory."
