There is an article on normalisation at IBM developer works for all
those who need a primer on table normalisation.

I learnt this from, would you believe, "dBase Mac" by Jim Heid when I
was one of the two users in the world running that version in 1988-1989
=:-D

I recomend "Database Application Programming with Linux" Wiley. There
are some good table design chapters even for non Linux people.

Good database design helps make PostgreSQL run fast.

Cheers
