Apparently Jonathan's "Practical Oracle 8i" is a pretty highly 
appreciated/respected/used book. On
the other hand I am a bit worried about going for such an oudated[?] Oracle 
version even though I
assume from the book's Contents that it talks about a lot of Oracle's 
internals/basics, which
obviously haven't changed that dramatically even in 10g. Is my assumption safe 
or should I be
worried about the "8i" in the title?
