While "Databases for Dummies" is probably full of useful stuff, no way would it be as much fun as learning about databases from Manga Princess Ruruna. Manga is a hugely popular Japanese artwork form with wildly and colorfully-clad young things. In the "Manga Guide to Databases," Tico, a fairy, teaches the Princess how to effectively keep her dates timely and accurate.
Implications - When it comes to learning, creative methods are key. While instructional books are great, interactive methods enhance the learning process. With a product like Manga Database for Dummies, companies can try to accentuate the entertainment value in educational tools in order to make learning fun and practical at the same time.
