alpha copies of two chapters of Tom's new book are available

I was searching this afternoon for something about flashback and specifically whether it is possible to restrict a user from being able to issue select statements including "AS OF SCN". I happened upon a link to something written by Tom Kyte and discovered that it was an alpha chapter or extract of Tom Kyte's Expert Oracle 10g Edition. These two alpha pages are on Apress's site on a page titled "Alpha and Beta Books". The two extracts are:

Developing Successful Oracle Applications

Architecture Overview

Whilst not security related, these are an excellent peek at Tom's latest creation.
