The book is not "complete" as the title suggests, not covering all new features (case-insensitivity using NLS_SORT, NLS_COMP is just one example).
Additionally, not all the information is accurate -- the author does not even know what the term "relational database" means, he thinks "relations" have something to do with foreign keys. A common misconception yes, but worrisome from a database "expert". I also found incorrect syntax in the transportable tablespace section, before I gave up with the book entirely.
Use at your own risk, and consider that the author has given his own book a 5 star rating on this site!
It arrived well packaged and in time, thanks guys.
