Title: Mastering Oracle SQL, 2nd Edition
Publisher: O'Reilly
Authors: Sanjay Mishra, Alan Beaulieu
Rating: 4/5
Customer opinion - 4 stars out of 5
Value for the beginning DBA.

I found this book especially helpful because it was written so a beginning DBA can turn to a page and immediately make sense of what's written. I am a fledgling DBA working with large SQL-type databases in a high-pressure environment. This book provided interesting gotcha's and excellent tips and work-arounds that have been useful in debugging code real-time.
Written to encompass Oracle 10g, this book is a great addition to the manual and has helped me finesse my skills in writing queries, working with the built-in functions, and re-working some of the once-valuable strings that were abandoned after upgrading to a newer version.
Well worth the money - time well spent reading - and pays for itself after helping you out of the inevitable jam.

Title: Absolute OpenBSD: UNIX for the Practical Paranoid
Publisher: No Starch Press
Authors: Michael W. Lucas
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
Thoroughly Delightful, great for those new to OpenBSD

Before reading this book, I had tried out OpenBSD a little, but I was left with many questions, and online documentation can be a bit intimidating at times. So when I found this book at the bookstore, I was thrilled. I am happy to say that this book really did live up to expectation.
The intended audience of this book were people who knew there way around Unix and Linux. One need not be a veteran user, but as the author points out, you are expected to know basic command line stuff. If you are there, you will find this book to be a very easy going, yet thorough introduction to OpenBSD.
This book walks you all the way through the origins of BSD, through installation (an excellent section of the book), to usage, compiling kernels, and so on. You get a well-rounded coverage of a very interesting operating system.
I also really like the author's style of writing. On the one hand, you get a genuine sense of professionalism, but on the other hand, he cracks some good jokes throughout. If you are a system admin of any sort, you will certainly appreciate the humor.
In closing, I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who's had some experience with Unix and Linux. OpenBSD is a operating system few have tried, but I think after reading this book, you will definitely want to go out and try it yourself. The book is definitely time and money well spent.
