The material on these pages is a work in progress, tentatively titled, PostgreSQL: Introduction and Concepts, to be published in 2000, ©Addison-Wesley. Posted with permission of the publisher. All rights reserved.
I have completed my first draft of chapters 1-6. Parts may not be spell checked, proofread, or critiqued. You are seeing it as it is being written.
I am interested in any comments you may have, including typographic errors, places with not enough detail or too much detail, missing topics, extraneous topics, confusing sentences, poor word choice, etc. The PDF version has numbers appearing in the margins to allow you to easily refer to specific lines in the book. People reading the web version can refer to specific URL'S. Please mention the date of November 21, 1999 when referring to this document. You can contact me at mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org.
A current copy can be retrieved from http://www.postgresql.org/docs/awbook.html. Also, it is available from the POSTGRESQL FAQ's and Documentation page, http://www.postgresql.org/docs. It is updated automatically every night. This book is set in Bitstream Century Old Style, 11 point.
Keep in mind that this is to be printed as a book. In the PDF version, diagrams may not appear on the same pages that refer to them. They will appear on the facing page when printed in book format.
