Actually, why do you need this book ? Why don't you just download the documentation or print out the manual from [the website]?
The reason is simple: This book is precise and direct.
This book likes provides clear steps for you to achieve various functions including administration, debugging , SQL and Procedures.
If you find, there are two books called Unix For Oracle and Oracle DBA Checklists, those are simple and crucial steps required by DBA as well as manager, we don't need a thick book with 800 pages, we just need a book with 100 pages and portable.
I strongly recommend this book for consultants and developers.
It helps me to solve problems many times...:>
I like books that teach me new things and help me be more productive in my work. This is definitely one of those book.
It might be unfair that I only give 4 stars but I would have liked this book to be longer and with some examples. This is of course not possible in a pocket reference.
I can really recommend this book to the normal TOAD user. Maybe this is superfluous for the advanced TOAD user.
Over the years I have found one feature after another that further solidifies my devotion to the tool. Now I finally have a book, that gives yet more hidden secrets. What a wonderful Christmas present it was when I opened it under the Christmas tree.

It's does touch on the optional add-ins you can get for TOAD (if you get the commericial version) like the DBA module. It had plenty for me on the debugger. If you're looking for a tutorial, this isn't it, though it does remind you about looking in the docs folder for TOAD documentation in PDF. This little guide is a great reference.

Being new to TOAD, when I first glanced at the book without having the TOAD application opened, my eyes glazed over. Read morePublished on February 12, 2009 by jbear
Useful - but I would say costs too much for its content.
Anyone can make their own reference book similar to or better than this using TOAD's Help features!
