Jonathan Stern used more than 13 years of experience in contributing to the original edition of this book. His background included senior positions in consulting, systems architecture, and technical sales at Oracle and other companies. He demonstrated in-depth knowledge of the Oracle Database across major open systems hardware and operating systems.

Some of the fundamentals of Oracle that he originally contributed to the first edition live on in this edition of Oracle Essentials though much has changed in the Oracle Database since Jonathan passed on. Each edition of this book is a reminder of the talent and attention to detail that he possessed.

The reason? Its title suggests that you will be able to learn the essentials of the database, like installing it, configuring it to a minimum level, create some tables and start practicing your SQL. Oracle is such a complex subject, that whoever masters it can command a 100,000.00 salary. But as I started reading the book, I began to realize that it talks a lot about the Relational Model, Oracle's Philosophy, a little bit of history, etc. etc. etc. However, it never goes down to earth and gives you a step by step instruction on any of the thousand topics that can actually gives you some how-to skill. You cannot even use this book for installing the software which is supposed to be the simplest things to do with any package. In Oracle you have several major topics, either one being a totally different career. Database Administrator, SQL Developer, Data Architect, Database Network Designer. With this book you never get either 101.
I guess the book will be good if I need to define a concept for a term paper. For example, what is a instance. Many tutorials on YouTube do a better job showing how to do something specific, for free. That is, if you can identify them.
For the book, Oracle Essentials means being able to discuss the Oracle theories and even the features, but apparently it assumes that you don't want to actually test anything to get your hand dirty. I guess it is a great book for the scholars who need to reference DBMS without having to install it and use it. Or for the ones who already knows a lot and want to see what new features may be available in the "new" 12c version.
I think that with only 380 pages of working text that that was a good decision. The other Oracle working manuals are over 700 pages in size and they don't really reach a comprehensive level of coverage either.
I think this book serves well to introduce the new product without getting lost in the details. Chapter 8 and 9 on performance tuning and concurrency are as close as it comes to introducing the differences of version 12c compared to 10 and 9. This approach is consistent with Oracle's previous documentation. In other words, there is no one stop shopping for an Oracle book.You will have to buy a number of them to cover any particular database design issue. The point is simply that you must be committed to Oracle as a database solution. If you aren't, pick up some other database.
Introduced clearly, written very well and easy to read.
