If this is the book I think it is (Pro SQL Server 2005 yadda yadda),
then please do me -or rather yourself- a favor and stop trying to learn
database theory from it. There are a lot of things that Louis and I
agree on, but database theory is definitely not among them. Parts of his
book are useful, the art is figuring out which parts.
