I found both of Stephane's SQL books to be extremely informative and readable. Two descriptions that don't often apply to technical books at once. On that note, anyone else excited for this to come out? http://www.amazon.com/Pro-Oracle-SQL-Karen-Morton/dp/1430232285/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1291399391&sr=1-1 Hopefully it starts shipping soon.

If you wage a constant war on runaway SQL, this is your foundational book. I have a signed copy from the author (thanks Stephane!) and am probably looking for an iPad version of it.
