I did it again! Today I am releasing the new edition of my book, with a new title: “The Art of PostgreSQL”. I’m very happy (and quite excited) to declare my book as Generally Available!

The Art of PostgreSQL is the new edition of my previous release, Mastering PostgreSQL in Application Development. It contains mostly fixes to the old content, a new title, and a new book design (PDF and paperback). Content wise, The Art of PostgreSQL also comes with a new whole chapter about PostgreSQL Extensions.

The new chapter covers extensions such as hstore, pg_trgm, intarray, earthdistance, ip4r, and hll or HyperLogLog, one of the all times favorite extensions of Craig Kerstiens… who made himself available to answer my questions and share his view of PostgreSQL Extensions in an interview!
