I decided to add a twist to my usual blogs - a book review, which I have not done before. I have been reading a book - Oracle Apex 4.0 Cookbook by Marcel van der Plas and Michel van Zoest and published by Packt, a UK based publisher. Michel is one of the first Apex Certified Experts in the world - a no small feat.
