This book lives up to the promise on the cover. It gives the reader a rapid understanding of Basic SQL. And enough PL/SQL for the user to write flexible Programs in short order. There are 9 chapters, each a lesson kept to the perfect level to ensure understanding. All the chapters build on each other at an appropriate rate. Any developer working with an Oracle Database and needs to learn the basics needs to get this book. The understanding that Christopher gives of basic SQL and complicated joins and unions will be beneficial. You�ll be able to apply everything you learn in your JDBC application even if you don�t use any of the PL/SQL. However, once you learn the topics provided, you�ll see areas where you could gain significant performance enhancements using PL/SQL Stored Procedures.
Excellent first book to learn SQL and PL/SQL! (Carl Trusiak - Sheriff, October 2001)
