I guess the point is that using older books is the only option, there
simple are no uptodate books available. People who want to use a book (and
many do) are forced to learn PgSQL the way it was a few years ago.

True, but that only works for experienced 'nerds' who get a kick out of
connecting dots. Joe Average want's a bit more assistance, a bit more
In short; I think PgSQL needs a beginnersbook, an advanced-nerdy book, and
a bible... oh yeah, we need a PgSQL bible, no doubt! :) Cookbooks are also
nice, but I guess from a growth point of view a beginnersbook is
definately a must-have.
