It seems to me that if you play your database before creating your first table, you'll arrive at a decently organized body of data. I tried understanding Normalization by reading some essays and found the topic arcane and needlessly complex.  Could Codd explain normalization to a 5 year old?  

it seems that there are concepts worth learning but surely someone must have extracted the useful essence of the subject without the excess verbiage.
