Media Reviews
Reviews from the first edition of Inside Relational Databases:
Quite simply - superb. By making relational databases understandable, Mark Whitehorn and Bill Marklyn have achieved far more than most. Making the subject interesting and entertaining as well puts these two authors firmly in a class of their own.
- Neil Fawcett, Group Technical Editor, VNU Business Publications
PCW and contributor Mark Whitehorn is that rare combination - an expert in his field, databases, and a fine writer too, with a talent for honing a complex subject down to its essentials.
- Tamsin Todd, Computer & Internet Editor,
Inside Relational Databases is excellent. It is clearly and concisely written and full of humorous asides which ease the reader through an otherwise weighty topic. Probably the most engaging technical book I have read.
