Jonathan Gennick and co did a good job here. This "Oracle SQL Plus: The Definitive Guide" would be appreciated by most users, although that advanced SQL users who thirst for a unique guidance, having understood the elementary basics of SQL are its primary target. The medium-sized book boasts of updated and revised information whose accuracy are indisputable. Its methodology is as well, dynamic. The pattern of this book is such that tries to turn difficult issues into entertaining ones. It is worth its asking price.

Format: Paperback
Having been a user of SQL*Plus for over 10 years I was hoping to find some answers to more advanced topics rather than the basics. The coverage of how SQL*plus scripts are driven from O/S batch or shell scripts is sorely lacking. This is a rich area not effectively covered in any text that I'm aware of. Several areas don't tell the full story - or fail to highlight subtle differences in syntax (e.g. yy vs. rr in date formatting).
Having said all that, I still regularly use this book as a reference and continue to learn from it.

As a mainframe programmer making the transition to the client-server environment, I found this book to be a great introduction to SQL*Plus. The one thing that became immediately apparant (while reading the book), was that one had to work through the examples with SQL*Plus. Gennick is a good author and is able to get the material across in an efficient and effective manner. I highly recommend this book to any individual desiring an introductory and working knowledge of SQL Plus.

Oracle was new to me, although I've worked with other RDBMSs, and I needed a reference for the SQL Plus interface. Gennick's book turned out to be just the thing. The writing is clear, there are lots of examples, and the topics are inclusive -- from the basic environment to advanced scripting and tuning. I've recommended this book to students.

Format: Paperback
I must admit that I am somewhat disappointed with this book. To me, an SQL Plus book should deal with using the most basic and useful commands, for example, various powerful functions, date handling, etc. This books covers some PL./SQL , Oracle load , tuning and administration -- strictly speaking not part of SQL Plus. With the widespread use of Developer 2000, the Report Writing part of SQL Plus is losing its importance and there should not be given too much coverage. For one trying to take the Oracle Certification in SQL Plus, this is not a suitable book

SQL-Plus is a fundamental tool but it is hard to find a useful guide on the topic in the market. And I am glad finally there is one.
Oracle Sql Plus: The Definitive Guide is really interesting to read. The author writes in a friendly style and depicts each topic with lots of examples ( so many and so usful that you can add to your own libraries ).
Personally, I am much appealed by the author's discussion on reporting, writing scripts and setting environment. If you are not familiar with any of these, you will be greatly awarded when finishing the book. I can bet it!
