Chapters 1 and 4 (yes, I found my copy!) in particular of "Guide to Data Warehousing and Star Schemas" are at a theoretical level which means they don't really date. A bit like the opening chapters in my well-worn old copy of Tom Kyte's "Expert One-on-One Oracle" (one day I'll get a newer edition, mine's an old 8i one).

For 10g/11 functionality I supplement it with the official Oracle Tahiti doco.
