"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."
--Dr. Patrick Hill, BCS - The Chartered Institute for IT

"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

"If you are a database professional who knows SQL reasonably well and want to learn both more about SQL as well as gain a firm foundation on the principles of relational theory then I wholeheartedly and very highly recommend SQL And Relational Theory Master Class."
--T. Michael Testi, Blogcritics.org

"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

"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

"This small, focused reference work attempts to establish a common vocabulary of over 600 terms for professionals in the fields of database design and management. Each term or concept is well-defined, and examples are frequently provided for greater clarification...The author calls this new work a "dictionary with an attitude" as the work reflects his own beliefs and opinions."
--G.A. Wasdin, The New York Public Library

"Written by a renown pioneer in the field of relational database technology, this handy pocket-sized reference contains complete and authoritative definitions of more than 600 terms."
--Michael Kleper, The Kleper Report on Digital Publishing
