Beginning Oracle SQL for Database 12c
2014 – ApressBeginning Oracle SQL 12c

Authored by the late great Lex de Haan and published in December 2004, Tim is one of three contributing co-authors updating this wonderful and informative book for Oracle Database 12c.

It was a genuine pleasure working on this third edition (ISBN: 1-43026-556-6) with such masters as Melanie Caffrey and Inger Jorgensen, and we were all cognizant of the solid and thorough work that Lex had achieved with his original volume.  Our goal was to bring his work up-to-date with the latest version of Oracle Database while altering Lex’s clarity of voice and his warmth as little as possible.  We are proud of the result, and hope you will enjoy it as well.

This book is published by Apress and is available online at Amazon.com and Barnes and Noble.

2009 – Apress (Oak Table Press)

Tim is one of four contributing co-authors, along with Karen Morton, Inger Jorgenson, and Daniel Fink, updating the original book “Mastering Oracle SQL and SQL*Plus” authored by the late great Lex de Haan and published in December 2004.   Lex passed in February 2006 and is sorely missed by everyone with whom he came in contact.  This second edition (ISBN 1-43027-197-3) was published in December 2009 and changes the title of the original while it updates Lex’s brilliant original work to include new developments in Oracle10g R2 and Oracle11g R1.  It was a difficult task to update near perfection, and we were all cognizant of the huge shoes in which we were attempting to walk, but we are all proud of the result.

This book is published by Apress and is available online at Amazon.com and Barnes and Noble.
