The Art and Science of Oracle performance tuning is a surprisingly unique Oracle book. Rather than focusing on technical scripts and remedies, Chris Lawson takes the approach of the Oracle detective, packing this book with insights and techniques in order to diagnose the root causes of Oracle performance problems. Throughout the text, Lawson shares investigative techniques that are extremely helpful in locating the root causes of all sorts of performance tuning problems. Especially useful are Lawson's sections on SQL tuning and PGA memory management. Overall, this is a surprisingly comprehensive book that focuses on the approach to be taken by the Oracle tuning expert to quickly and efficiently identifying the causes of Oracle performance problems.
