Oracle PL/SQL Programming
Steven Feuerstein's first book, Oracle PL/SQL Programming, has become the classic reference to PL/SQL, Oracle's procedural extension to its SQL language. His new book looks thoroughly at one especially advanced and powerful part of the PL/SQL language the package. The use of packages can dramatically improve your programming productivity and code quality, while preparing you for object-oriented development in Oracle technology. In this book, Feuerstein explains how to construct packages- and how to build them the right way. His "best practices" for building packages will transform the way you write packages and help you get the most out of the powerful, but often poorly understood, PL/SQL language.

Writing a Book About Oracle
A casual scan of the bookshelves at any large bookstore reveals an interesting trend: There are more and more Oracle books available today, from an increasing number of publishers. The number of new titles has exploded just in the last few years-almost as fast as Oracle releases new database versions. This huge expansion of new titles also means that there are lots of opportunities for new writers. Presumably, these books are all being published because there really is a big demand for good database books. To exploit these opportunities, however, some preparation is required.

There are several handbooks in the middle that detail the basics of database administration and optimization.
Autobiography of a lady oracle
BOOKS ARE TENTS. Especially sturdy little hardbacks like this one. Thumb open the pages halfway through and place it face down on a table; Borrowers could shelter in there quite happily, above their heads a few dim paragraphs. That?s the conceit of the title story in this collection. But Margaret Atwood?s book-tent isn?t pitched comfortably on a bedside table, it is stuck in the middle of a howling wilderness?. The writer wants to protect those she loves by keeping them safe inside the tent, by writing on its walls. But the tent is made of paper. Paper won?t keep anything out.
