Essential Oracle for all DBAs & Developers


If possible, this book may be even better than Oracle One-on-One. Simply the finest collection of practical suggestions & design principles I've ever seen in one place and I have a large Oracle library. This book is a page-turner. Kudos to Tom!

This book was written for small children


Simply put this book assumes its reader is a complete and total idiot. 80% of the book is just filler...overexplaining almost every tiny detail to the point of absurdity. So much wasted paper is spent on interview techniques and field names which is all common sense. If you have any common sense, spend your money elsewhere.

Title: Gödel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid
Publisher: Basic Books
Authors: Douglas R. Hofstadter
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
literary style demonstrates book's themes


a cursory glance at a random passage of godel, escher, and bach, will likely appear to be jabberwocky, with its unapologetic, evolving vocabulary and sparkles of inside jokes based on such, this is ironic, because the right arm of this book is recursion, which implies that the whole is implied by each part, far from while reading, one most certainly must read godel, escher, and bach in its sequential order, too funny
