Very limited - academia perhaps, most other newbs aren't interested in details - they just want the money shot!

Also most of the smart alec algorithms in use in such products are already described so this book would perhaps do some service in coalescing what is used in which product/version. Of course it would be out of date in 6 months except for SQL Server which takes 5 years ;-).
