there's a book you really want to read but it hasn't been written yet,
must write it.
- Toni Morrison
book is the result of my experience of over two decades in relational
databases, including Sybase, MS-SQL Server, Unify, Informix, SQL Anywhere,
MySQL, etc., and, of course, Oracle, in which I have worked extensively, and
have designed and developed a number of commercial applications.
There are scores of books on Oracle,
and many good ones too. I like to believe that this one is not just another -
its coverage and treatment is different. But, you judge! Following are the
highlights of this book:
covers practically all of SQL, PL/SQL and SQL Plus; and it covers System
Administration in adequate detail. However, it does not cover topics like
Backup & Recovery.
the latest Oracle 11g Release 2
Oracle Best Practices.
Best Practices' comprehensively covers best practices in Naming Conventions,
Database Design, SQL, PL/SQL, Audit & Logging, and Performance Enhancement.
Foundation for Designing a
Robust, High-Performance Database.

Normalization, it is not possible to design a robust, high performance
database; and hence due justice has been done to the topics on Relational
fundamentals and Normalization.
Brevity, with Clarity.
treatment of topics has been avoided. Each topic has been dealt with as briefly
and as clearly as possible.

aspect has been illustrated with examples, as examples help understand fast,
and bring clarity to the concepts.
Book is full of useful code. There is a also separate section on "Sample
Code & Utilities".
Apparently thick because of
book is apparently thick only because it covers many topics, with lots of
examples. However, each topic has been dealt with as briefly as possible,
without sacrificing clarity. It is not the verbosity that makes the book thick,
but vast coverage.
Meant for :
the Book is meant for the professionals, the beginners would also find it very
useful, as it deals with all the fundamentals too. It is meant for the
developers, the designers and the architects; and also the system
administrators. The Book would be very useful and effective for training
do hope you find the book useful.
