I thought I would send an update on this. I was contacted by Jonathan Gennick at Apress who reads this list and saw my email below. He asked me which book was missing and sent it to me, along with another ebook he thought I might be interested in which was a nice gesture. Today I was provided with a procedure to relink the book to my account, which has worked.

So a happy ending for me at least.

I’d be wary of using them. A book disappeared from my account, so I raised it with their support, but can’t get a response. Also they are one of those American companies who change the same in UK Pounds as they do in US Dollars, so the offers are worse value in the UK.

Hey all,

It's been awhile since I've spammed the list with an ad from for us to get some cheap Oracle (and other) ebooks and/or paper books. Here's what they sent me:

"Cyber Monday at Apress starts early this year—eBooks, just 9.99 and print books, only 12.50 + FREE shipping. Sale starts 11/21/17, so mark your calendars and start browsing now! This offer is valid for individual customers only. Institutions are excluded. Regional VAT may apply."

I personally think the DRM-free ebook format from Apress is the best available, and there are some very good Oracle books to pick up dirt cheap.
