Who is the book targeted at; the application developer or the database administrator?

I don't like the sample Chapter1 very much. It uses too much pages to explain what RMDB is and some basic SQLs. As a developer, everyone has some knowledge of database. I think it's a waste to apply Head First style to the simple questions.

I like the interview with Mr. Null. That's the style I like: making hard question simple to understand.

I'd say the app developer, although I would hope any beginning db admin who didn't know this stuff should take a look at it.
