This book is mostly a restatement of the Oracle manuals. But it excels over other books of the same nature in two ways:

1. the authors do from time to time offer some of their own experiences. This has become one of the reasons I continue to buy technical books: I am looking for the author's experiences, not basics I can read from Oracle. So they offer a little in places where it makes a difference.

2. this is a one stop shop for everything index related in Oracle. Details about indexes and indexing in Oracle are all over the Oracle manual set. This book covers most of it up through 11g. This means it can save you a great deal of time because it coalesces index related material under one cover. For that it gets much higher marks than it would have otherwise gotten from me. Again it is this book's ability to save you hours of research time by putting everything index related in one place that really makes this book a good device.

I recommend it to beginner and intermediate skill levels. Nothing hard to read here, good summaries all over. But if you have been doing Oracle for 10 years or more, and are up-to-date with 11g then you won't find too much here so not a five star item.

Hail Flavius!

No explosive revelations for the DBA with graying ponytail and sandals but it covers the topic well. For the newcomer or as a review (I found it helpful), it is a good book.

Darl Kuhn is one of the best teachers when it comes to database back up and recovery; he knows what he is talking about. I had him as a teacher at Regis University and we used the Expert Indexing in Oracle. This book is well-explained in every step of the backup and pitfalls that you should be aware of; it also has extra information on most of the databases. I kept the book as a reference desk.
