Media praise for Oracle Essentials

"The third edition is updated for Oracle 10g. Since the authors point out which features are specific to Oracle 8i, 9i and 10g, this book is just as useful for older versions of Oracle. For readers of previous editions, the book has an appendix directing the reader to the new 10g content...This book covers everything you would want to know about Oracle and provides references for more detail on each topic. If you are only going to buy one Oracle book, this is the one to buy.
--Jeanne Boyarsky, JavaRanch, May 2004

"This latest version of Oracle contains a huge number of new and powerful programs. I'm sure Administrators will be scrambling for quite some time to find as much as information as possible to help them understand them and learn how to utilize these new technologies. O'Reilly Media, Inc. to the rescue. They are always there when you need them and most of the time...before you even know you need them."
