just motivational talk...
there isn't any actual how-to's....
there isn't even the typical research-backed hypothesis or paradigms...
delivery of the "tips to improve communication" aren't particularly structured to have a "punch" ....

pretty much any random person who likes to give advise without realizing they're boring could've recorded this audiobook... i don't know why they charge for it, don't waste your money

Understanding these relationships that make up a database can allow you to figure out the overall structure of the database you are building or working on. This will allow for better use of the existing framework and increase your productivity while decreasing time spent crunching numbers.

What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

databases technology is not out-of-reach for the average educated person. databases are all around us, and as the information-age progresses it will be more and more useful to be familiar with databases fundamentals even if you're field seems unrelated to computer science...

Any additional comments?

this book is tailored to be listened to on audio-format. it is organized and narrated in a way easy to follow while you're doing exercise or commuting. i loved the plain-english type of explanation because im not a computer science person. i found the examples used to clarify the concepts very close to my day-to-day living and thefore easier to remember. finally, i appreciate the useful tips and general knowledge the author provides on topics beyond databases, like industry trends and personal productivity...
