    Rich never disappoints

    Rich's coverage of all things Oracle performance in his new book is quite comprehensive to say the least. With ci.hapters covering SQL tuning to architecture to the latest in Oracle engineered systems there is sure to be something of interest to DBA's, system admins, storage admins and the new crop of database machine admins or DMA's.

    If you are migrating to 11.2 and want to take full advantage of all the performance enhancements it has to offer you need to add this book to you Oracle library.
