An Introduction to Database Systems by C J Date
(ISBN: 0201385902 )
Get this classic, take time to learn & understand each of the fundamental princuples and it will go a long way in quest for knowledge of database fundamentals.

The majority of authors writing books about vendor DBMS products are generally ignorant about the relational theory and more than half of what is being written about it is nothing but bullshit. Read the excerpts of some books in & you'll see what I mean.
