Useful for newcomers - of little use to Oracle professionals,

This review is from: Mastering Oracle SQL (Paperback)
My main gripe with this book is the insistance of the authors (and Oracle for that matter) to force the new ANSI join down your throat, it is used in every single join with no examples using the old syntax. On top of this, there is not one actual example of this super new syntax joining more than two tables together, in fact almost all the examples given avoid any serious complexity.
Where the book is useful is perhaps in the introduction of topics which you may be unfamiliar such as XML or if you are a relative newcomer to Oracle.
