I wasn't very impressed with the book either.  It always seems that books that swerve towards how tos, lack any usefulness after their publish date.

As I've blogged previously, I prefer intelligent design of databases over evolution.  :-)

I'm pleased I'm not alone, I borrowed this book from a colleague & came away distinctly unimpressed. Largely because of the idea of implementing most things through triggers & the consequent impact upon performance.

I thought Gert's post on the topic was much closer to the target.
