Can anyone recommend me a good book on database design that I can apply to a MySQL
database? I'm looking for something like "TCP/IP Illustrated", just for databases. Some kinda bible.
"SQL The Complete Reference" is decent, It mostly covers programming, but database design (entities, attributes, and normalization) is not really covered.

Object Role Modeling (A.K.A ORM) http://www.orm.net
also consider the book [1
This is mostly about modeling not design, for design you might also consider Scott Ambler's writings [2
