What books are on your bookshelf
Which Oracle books are on your bookshelf? Which books do you use/refer to on a regular basis (other than the Oracle manuals)? Are the books on the 'Links I Like' page your bookshelf?
My main bookshelf is online, the Oracle documentation set. I travel with 2.73 gig of Oracle documentation covering Oracle 7.3 on up. I use that all of the time.
In addition - I have every book on the links I like (I won't review/recommend a book without having read it). The transaction processing book isn't used much anymore (I have those concepts down). I refer to Practical Oracle8i by Jonathan Lewis from time to time - to look up something I know he said and refresh my memory. Cary's book Optimizing Oracle Performance was a cool read - it is nice to read something you agree with so much of.
I was a technical editor/reviewer on Mastering Oracle PL/SQL (another "yes, yes, I agree" book for me) as well as Effective Oracle Database 10g Security by Design. The Effective Security is another book I use as a reference from time to time.
Oracle8i Internal Services for Waits, Latches, Locks and Memory is another one I've had for a long time and still refer to today (very short, perhaps the smallest book I have).
Oracle Insights - just for fun and a little education, but for fun.
Oracle SQL*Plus, The Definitive Guide 2nd Edition - definitely. I was a tech editor/reviewer on that book and wrote a blurb for the back. I wrote words to the effect (don't have it with me here at Oracle Open World) "I learned a thing or two new about SQL*Plus reviewing this book" - and I live in SQL*Plus. Good stuff if you want to master that command line interface.
On my bookshelf you would also find a lot of books not related to Oracle. Lots of Science Fiction, some mystery/detective stories and the like.
What am I reading right now? I never read Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged so I'm going through it now. It is big (if you think they used a small font on expert one on one Oracle - my copy of atlas shrugged beats it hands down). Just got started on it on the way out to OOW.
