I think you're a day late.

The subject of the thread says "today", and the thread was started yesterday, and yesterday was "Cyber Monday".

it depends on your needs. I bought some books from Apress recently and _some_ of them
definitely deserve attention (some of the authors contribute to oracle-l):

  • Oracle Exadata Survival Guide - still in Alpha, but seems very interesting, reading the first chapters now
  • Pro Oracle SQL 2nd Edition - I have no doubts, considering the 1st edition and the authors list
  • Expert Oracle RAC 12c - already read, great book!
  • Expert Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c - still reading, very good
