Joel's new book.
Being bundled with Coder to Developer by Mike Gunderloy. Is that a good deal?
I want to know where I can collect my royalties for J+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ ?
I think it's great to finally see someone publish a lot of information about Oracle that typicallys passes from DBA to DBA via the oral tradition. Kudos to Joel for his clear presentation and practical book about Oracle; I'll definitely recommend it to my DBA's.
It must be a real hot seller. Amazon says, "Only 4 left in stock--order soon". As if that weren't odd enough, there's three *used* copies for sale. And, as Joel has already noted, there's already three reviews.
I don't follow why Joel thinks the reviews don't make sense -- ??
Oh, and yeah, Mr. Jack, almost all of it is on the site. He added an intro and some postscripts/commentary to the articles though. (Which is what Isaac Asimov used to do from time to time, and yes, I've bought some of those JUST FOR THE COMMENTS :). (Not to imply that Joel is Isaac Asimov. That might be sacreligious.))
It is a hot seller for sure: Amazon sales rank of 25 right now.
"Boss you should read some of the articles on this website by some guy named Joel"
Wow. I knew Joel was famous, but I never realized how famous he was. I'm sure he never realized it himself.
Philo - "Boss, read this book by the guy who was a program manager for Excel".
