I have not seen the book, but I would guess that any PostgreSQL book 
from a few years ago would still provide a decent overview. But you'll 
want to work with something more recent as you get into advanced 
features. The PostgreSQL documentation is very good, so I would 
recommend to skim the book for an overview and then use the PostgreSQL 
documentation as your primary reference.
