    1. Well written, with excellent information about database infrastructure. Concise, direct to the point and high value content. Helps to understand better how you can tune, configure and manage your databases at any level. Recommended for beginners or hard professionals.

    2. Available at dbrkeley/papers/fntd (big PDF). Very interesting look at the implementation of databases, followed by lots of pointers on where to learn more.I read it for the discussion on locking hierarchies, which has more "if you want to learn more" pointers than normal.I was happy to learn that database servers need to implement a form of Dijkstra's Bankers Algorithm; so contrary to Andrew S. Tannenbaum, that algorithm can, in fact, be applied in real life.

    3. Nevertheless this book is short, it can be considered as an encyclopedic reference on relational database systems. It contains the body knowledge of every aspect of the design of the RDBMS and should be considered as first point of contact into DB world. But as its quite short for a book -- it's more introduction into DB theory, however contains a lot of good references for further digging. Also, serves as a good complementary to the classical "System R" paper.
