Oddly enough, I have never found any documentation on the use of in-line select statements (also called in-line views), i.e. the construct

select a.contact_name,

from customers c,

         (select .. etc etc)

Can anyone recommend a book which it? My main question is, when and why would you use it? What's the advantage?

Any help would be gratefully received.
