This book overviews and contributes to the field of fuzzy databases. A lot of attention goes to fuzzy relational and fuzzy object-oriented databases; only a limited part of the book deals with XML. The structure of the book is well thought-out. Sections on various topics are often relatively short, which might leave the reader who is in search for good understanding hungry for more. For this reason, this book would not be my strongest recommendation for a novice in the field, but I do believe it can help advanced readers to improve their knowledge of the state of the art in fuzzy databases.
