The Manga Guide to Databases?

Filed under: Tongue In Cheek — Michael J. Swart @ 10:34 am

Jeff James, Editor-in-Chief at SQL Server Magazine, mentioned a particular guide in the “New Products” section of the May 2009 Issue.

This guide is called the the Manga Guide to Databases and there’s no hint of sarcasm or satire here. Follow the link for a better idea of what this book is about. Here’s a sample from their promotional material copy: 
Want to learn about databases without the tedium? With its unique combination of Japanese-style comics and serious educational content, The Manga Guide to Databases is just the book for you.
Whew! So here’s my question… Who is this book for? What demographic are they aiming at? If you think it’s you, then let me know in the comments. Tell me what about this book appeals to you. If you don’t think it’s you, then hazard a guess in the comments.
