I like SQL - I like having a declarative language available in systems - it's
much more than "a storage mechanism".  But I always worried about performace,
and I always worried that I was mis-understanding something about indices.

This awesome, slim book fixed that.  I *was* missing some details, but I also
had the basic idea right.  It's not black magic - it's a logical, consistent
system and this book explains it clearly.

If you're a moderately experienced programmer, with a basic understanding of
what a database is doing, but are unsure about some of the implementation
details, then this is the perfect book for you.  It's compact, clear, easy to
