Professional SQL Server 2000 Database Design

If you are standing in your favorite booksellers, flipping thorough this book because it is a WROX book, I know you are probably thinking, “Hey, where is all of the code, and settings and such like?” Well, this is not exactly that kind of book. (Not that there is anything wrong with that kind of book; I alone have a gaggle of them around my desk.) What I wanted to put together in this case was a database design book that balances on the thin line between the very implementation-oriented SQL Server books, where all they are concerned with are DBCC settings, index options and all of the knobs and handles on SQL Server, and the truly academic tomes that exist which go deep into the theory of databases, but provide little or no practical information.
