I'm self-teaching, know just enough to be dangerous, and am more persistent than rigorous. There is one whole lot of books out there on database theory, another on SQL, and yet another on how to use this or that DBMS to build a type of database, but nothing else I've found does as well at getting from requirements to queries. Date's book is general (applicable to all relational DBMSes) and theoretical. But more than theory, what it gives is sound general practice: this is how you look at your business requirements, how you break them down into tables and relations to enable the requisite queries. And in the process you see the whys behind the hows, and (I hope) learn the lexicon so your DBMS-specific books can speak to you. Given my needs, it's very readable.
