FWIW, I picked up Dan Tow's book to give it a read, and they guy isn't 
qualified to author "SQL Tuning".   You should chuck that book, it won't help 
you -- not with Oracle or SQL Server, and certainly not with PostgreSQL.   
O'Reilly continues to have trouble turning out quality database books.

Also, if you *were* using Dan's method, you'd be driving off Person, not
