    1. For me is just the best Oracle Book that I saw ever (and I saw many in 10 years working exclusively with Oracle databases).The only book that teaches well the diference between the two Oracle 8 parameters "db_writer_processes" and "dbwr_io_slaves".All the other books that I saw, say that "db_writers" in 7 is now called "dbwr_io_slaves" in 8, and they don't even mention the "db_writer_processes" parameter, and that's wrong.If your O.S. takes good advantage of async use "db_writer_processes" [...]

    2. Mr. Alomari managed to accomplish an extraordinary feat: presenting Oracle tuning in a concise, yet not superficial way. There are many originally undocumented (or poorly documented) features which are invaluable. A few topics, however, miss some explanation. But, all things considered, it is an excellent book. He addresses many issues that are really hard to find, especially on the interaction between UNIX and Oracle. When he says you cannot fix half of you car's engine, he is not exaggerat [...]

    3. The second edition is 10 times better than the first edition (which I also rate highly). The second edition covers the latest releases of Oracle8 and provides an enormous amount of real-life examples that I used to increase our system's performance. This book is a wealth of information for system and database administrators as well as application developers.

    4. I bought this on the recommendation of two people with much more tuning experience than I have. They both said that it gave the most complete set of tuning advice and I defer to their judgement on that. The editing, however, is terrible.Some sections only cover to Solaris 2.4, while others are updated to cover 2.6. The information in the section "Stripping on Sun" is five years old, with the author/editor covering the next generation of product in a new section. It looks like a slipshod [...]
