O'Reilly's series of Oracle references rapidly build up into a complete reference library that will sit at the front of the shelves of any Oracle DBA. But first you've got to get started, and Oracle Essentials is meant to be that jumping-off point.
Instead of throwing you in at the deep end with a dissertation on data mining, or some obscure section of the Oracle environment, the authors give you a concise and clear guide to the features of the latest Oracle databases--and how you're likely to want to use them. From an introduction to Oracle's family of tools and technologies to a look at Oracle on the Web, Oracle Essentials is full of useful information. It's not just a book that describes the features--you'll also find code samples and plenty of hands-on practical advice. If you're still unclear, the book's diagrams show just what the authors are describing.
Oracle Essentials is a distillation of the knowledge of a group of very experienced Oracle engineers, and it should be on the desk of anyone working with Oracle. --Simon Bisson, amazon.co.uk [via]
