Hi Elielson,

Nice question.  :)

The "best book" for you really depends on what you are after!

Are you interested in a book which is easy to read, gives good
foundational concepts, and gives you decent skills with PostgreSQL, but
may not make you a guru?

Or, are you more after a book which is more technically advanced and
challenging, and assumes you have already learnt the easier stuff?

There are also reference volumes available (if that's what you're after,
but it doesn't sound like it).

The online books which are available have a decent amount of material in
them too, and you can buy hard copies of them so you have them nearby at
all times.

So... for us to *really* be able to give you good suggestions, we really
need to know more about what you're truly needing.

Hope that helps.

:-)

Regards and best wishes,

Justin Clift
