Lets be honest, as I have said in other reviews of Oracle 11g, Oracle 11g is a beast. There are so many new features that have been added to it in this new version that it sometimes feels that you are learning a whole new database. Yes, Oracle 11g is pretty much the defacto standard when it comes to DBMS but it can take years to fully master all its complexities. I've only been using Oracle for a few years and sometimes I still consider myself a newbie at time. So even though this book seems like a monster too (1300+ pages), it is something that no Oracle DBA or even casual user should be without. The author, Sam Alapati really covers everything there is to know to fully administer Oracle 11g and some things I didnt even know existed until I went through the book. You dont have to read this book cover to cover to fully appreciate this book's wealth of knowledge. The book is very well organized and makes it really easy to find exactly what you are looking for. Since a book this size really has to be well organized otherwise you will spend hours trying to find something. Not only is this book very well organized but is written in a way in that you don't have to be a genius to understand it. I've read so many other Oracle books that assume you have a Phd in engineering or something to understand what the author is talking about. This book explains all the topics in an easy to read and digest manner with plenty of "real-life" examples that you probably already have encountered at work using Oracle. The book is divided into 7 sections: Data Modeling, Achitecture, Installation and Upgrading, User Management, Backup and Recovery, Managing, and Performance Tuning. The author explains so much excellent information in this book than its really like getting 2 or 3 books in one. The Performance section alone is worth the price alone since many other Oracle books barely talk about this topic unless its a separate book. And the Architecture and Installation sections really explain how the new version (11g) really differs from previous versions and quickly makes you understand how much has changed from older versions. This book can also be used as reference book for getting your Oracle certifications as well: Oracle Database SQL Certified Expert exam. So I highly recommend this book to anyone who really wants to learn Oracle the right way and save money in the process since you really do not need another book! A great buy!
