Pro Oracle Database
is a book focused on results. Author Darl Kuhn draws from a well of experience over a decade deep to lay out real-world techniques that lead to success as an Oracle Database
administrator. He gives clear explanations on how to perform critical tasks. He weaves in theory where necessary without bogging you down in unneeded detail. He is not afraid to take a stand on how things should be done. He won't leave you adrift in a sea of choices, showing you three ways to do something and then walking away.
Database administration isn't about passing a certified exam, or about pointing-and-clicking your way through a crisis. Database
administration is about applying the right solution at the right time, about avoiding risk, about making robust choices that get you home each night in time for dinner with your family.
