Reviews excellent view of the range of research currently taking place in the area of database design. Another advantage of having such a broad range of papers is that the book, if not every paper it contains, will be accessible to both academics and practising engineers. All in all, I would recommend this book as a source of reference to anyone working in the field of PMS, who is interested in state-of-the-art research taking place in database design and implementation.
