This book is for everyone working with Oracle SQL, be they DBAs, developers, report writers, or even end
users. No matter what level of expertise you currently possess for writing and using SQL, there are
recipes within Oracle SQL Recipes that will appeal to you. This book is not designed to teach you SQL or
to act as a facsimile of the Oracle SQL reference. Instead, what you’ll find are elegant and sometimes
tricky solutions to real problems that you’ll never see presented in a language manual.
