a good book for relational database design?

Does anybody know a good book for relational database design? I had a look in "amazon", but there are a lot. I want it to include examples maybe and of course things like 3NF, BCNF, etc

Does it have to be for a certain program to do it? Cause from my own experience (access sucks!) and what I hear from others there are a lot of different programs that have the same basic part but do things a little bit different. I talked to a university ICT student and he told me that they did basic database stuff and then used 1 program to write the database in.

Fundamentals of database systems

A very very technical book on the topic including a fair bit of mathematics.

DARKLEAF, no it does't have to be about a specific DBMS, in fact it must not be... I want to learn the Database Science and database design, not about a specific program (especially not Access)
