In that case, I'll try to find a copy of this book to review - it covers 
a lot more than just SQL.

Then here's a list of "relational data model" hits at Barnes and Noble, 
that aren't reviewed on the PostgreSQL site already:

1) Terry Halpin & T. A. Halpin, "Information Modeling and Relational 
Databases: From Conceptual Analysis to Logical Design", April 2001, 
ISBN: 1558606726

2) Isolina Salgado, "Relational Database Design: A Practical Approach", 
  September 1999, ISBN: 0758035586

3) Jan L. Harrington, "Relational Database Design Clearly Explained", 
May 2002, ISBN: 1558608206


 From the reviews I've read on the B&N site, (3) is the one I'll 
probably start with. I'm amazed by the price difference between the USA 
($US40 at B&N) and Australia ($AU101 at Dymocks)... here we go on the 
consumer-driven extinction of Australian bookshops...
