in reply to Postgresql books?

Hi,

In the Reviews section of the monastery, I found a review for Practical PostgreSQL however, the review wasn't very favourable. But in one of the replies another book was mentioned in a more favourable light: PostgreSQL Developer's Handbook. Maybe you should check out this one.
Aside: there are some really useful Book Reviews in the monastery, after buying a couple of donkeys in the past, I always make sure to check out the verdict here before I even consider handing over my hard earned cash!

    I have both books and like both, I'd get the O'Reilly book Practical PostgreSQL first and follow it with the developer's handbook afterward. Practical PostgreSQL is available online for free as well though I really preferred having the paper copy for this instance. Along the way though, I'd really suggest you also get a copy of Joe Celko's SQL for Smarties. Time and again, it is one of the most recommended books on the PostgreSQL mailing lists.

    To add to what martymart said, you should also check out http://techdocs.postgresql.org/#convertfrom, concerning 'Converting from other Databases to PostgreSQL'.
