Comments about oreilly Oracle SQL*Plus: The Definitive Guide, 2nd Edition:

I have found this book to be a really great guide that is easy to follow. The author provides a gentle, but thorough introduction to topics like creating reports, writing scripts, customization etc. He offers methodologies and alternatives beyond the syntax that you can find in the manual. For example, he presents and evaluates six ways you can achieve some kind of if-then-else flow control in SQL*Plus.
