First Sentence
Oracle is such a complex system that without analogies it's really very hard to comprehend and grasp the concept of Oracle architecture and its working. Read the first page

3.0 out of 5 stars Satisfied July 13 2006
By A Programmer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am satisfied with this book as a gentle introduction to Oracle database concepts.

However, this book is not a 'bible'. You will need to get a different book for detailed coverage of topics and for use as a reference. But if you read this beforehand, you will have a leg up on the very dense DBA books/classes out there.

Of particular value is the step by step guide to downloading and installing Oracle database; something that is just taken for granted in most books. It also covers Oracle from both a WinNT & Unix perspective.

I am only giving 3 stars because the grammar and diction in this book is awful. Absolutely awful! Many readers will find this distracting and loose the benefit this book could provide!

Here is a very ironic example (he is trying to explain networking protocols as equivalent to human language): "Protocol is nothing but the 'grammar' e.g. right now I am using the English protocol to speak with you and you are understanding whatever I am saying since I following English grammar by default. Imagine if I stop following grammar rules than it would be really impossible for you to understand what I am saying. Similarly, when two machines (computers) talks with each other, both of them have to follow the grammar (protocol) of the language (TCP/IP)."

3.0 out of 5 stars Excellent concept, but terrible editing devalues the book. Dec 5 2006
By Andrew - Published on Amazon.com
The difficulty in using Oracle 10g is exceeded only by the difficulty in understanding its manuals - and this goes for Oracle's entire product line as well. The author is obviously trying to fill an important need: Demystifying Oracle 10g for beginners. But the grammatical errors means that this book will not (and cannot) be taken seriously by anyone wishing to learn Oracle. Perhaps this is a feature of authors who choose to self-publish or who cannot find a well established publisher for their texts (Apress, Oreilly, etc.) Perhaps in a second edition the author will have found a publisher who can provide both him and us with a more professional product. Neverthless, this is a valiant effort and there is no other book like it. Simplifying Oracle. What a great idea!
