Rick Greenwald has been in the technology industry for over 20 years and is the author of 12 previous books, most of them on Oracle. He has been involved with development and databases for his entire career, including stops at Data General, Cognos, Gupta Technologies, and his current employer, Oracle. Computers and computing are a sideline for Rick — his real job is father to his three wonderful girls, with a primary hobby of music appreciation.
