Appendix G. Recommended Reading
Should you be interested in pursuing an in-depth study of database technology, here are my recommendations for books on this subject. I've chosen these particular books because they have stood the test of time and have become standard reading within the database industry and academic institutions. (I'm pleased to state that my book has become part of this notable list.) Keep in mind that most of these books are going to be challenging to read; the authors presume that you have a fair amount of background in computers and programming or are pursuing a degree in computer science.
