  Hello ...,

  Bookpool has a sale on O'Reilly books: 43% off trade titles for
  a limited time...

  ----- End forwarded message -----

I'm in the market for a beginner's book on postgresql.  Here's
what a search on their site turned up.  Would anyone care to
recommend one in particular over the others?  My background is that
of a unix sysadmin and shell/perl tools programmer (if that makes a
difference).  I have no practical database experience.
