Expert Oracle Practices: Oracle database administration from the oak table

I was sent an email from some guy promoting some twitter (or some other site of the same ilk, i dont know now as i marked his mail as junk and deleted it) software that promotes books; he found me and my email address because he is interested in new books and had noticed that the new Oak Table is now listed on Amazon - "Expert Oracle Practices: Oracle Database Administration from the Oak Table (Paperback)"; my email address is not hard to find so i guess he found it and emailed me. So thanks for the tip but i wont be using your software. Sometimes unwanted email does have some use. wink ,i guess the trick is getting someone to read it.

Yes the new Oak table book is under development and should be published in January. I have mentioned it briefly here before. I have written two complete chapters; the first is about user security and the second is about the security of your data, around 60 pages in total. Its been a fun process and i wanted to get across some messages around how to secure your data gained over many years of securing data for other people full time.

Watch out, i will post again when the publication date gets closer.
