The title of this book is the second reason why I initially discounted the book as unusable.

About six months ago I read the book "Oracle Database 10g RMAN Backup and Recovery". While I enjoyed reading that book, I found that the book was difficult to use when practicing various backup, recovery, and cloning procedures which were outlined in the book. The reward for flipping through what must have been 50 to 100 pages in order to find everything needed for a practice procedure seemed to be the appearance of unexplained ORA errors, but maybe it was just my inability to follow the directions. In a panic database down situation, should it occur, the "Oracle Database 10g RMAN Backup and Recovery" book will remain on the shelf. So, I started looking for a different resource.

I initially discounted the "RMAN Recipes for Oracle Database 11g" book as irrelevant primarily as I currently use Oracle 10g R2 in production, and did not wish to be confused by a book using 11g specific RMAN syntax without acknowledging that a slightly different syntax is required for Oracle 10g (or 9i, for that matter). In addition to output captures showing that Oracle 11.1.0.x (beta) had been used, other output indicated that Oracle 10.2.0.x was used to demonstrate various commands in the book. The authors made a significant effort to indicate which features are available, and when necessary the alternate syntax in 11g, 10g, and versions prior to 10g. Paraphrasing a couple sections of the book: "Prior to Oracle 10g, it was necessary to set ARCHIVE_LOG_START ([SIC] - LOG_ARCHIVE_START) to TRUE in order to enable automatic archiving of redo logs." "RMAN does not back up locally managed temporary tablespace tempfiles - starting with Oracle 10g Oracle will recreate the tempfiles when the database is opened.

Format: Paperback
I had a choice between the Oracle Press book, "Oracle DB 10g Backup & Recovery" (called 'the other book') and this book. I sat down and scanned both books side by side. I chose this book even though it was 11g and I was using 10g. The book pretty clearly dilineates between 10 and 11 differences. It also shows both UNIX and Windows steps, which was nice since I was new to Oracle on Windows.

There is a very good Windows overview section.

The index is great. That is a pet peeve of mine. So many books don't even have entries in their index for some letters of the alphabet. This index is very complete.

The other book has a few problems in my opinion. (1) it wastes pages on the same rman syntax diagrams that the manuals have (which are not very easy to follow anyway); (2) it lists the RC tables (again - in the manual); (3) philosophically, I object to Oracle publishing and selling books that shouldn't be necessary if their manuals were easier to read (4) I haven't been that impressed with Oracle Press books in the past (5) not much of an improvement on the manuals compared to the recipe approach.

I agree with Hooper's review.

I disagree with the review by "Oracle DBA" (original user name) entitled "Yet another RMAN book!!". In Amazon, there are really only two books offered. I don't know how many books he's seen. Although I am comfortable reading the Oracle manuals, the four RMAN books take you around and around in circles. You have to read them very carefully to actually figure out what you can and can't do syntactically. The syntax diagrams that have you jumping all over the book are not very helpful. You almost have to be an attorney to decifer what the four books are saying. There is none of that in the 'recipe' book, thankfully.

If you are an Oracle DBA, this book will give you examples and solutions to RMAN problems that you won't find anywhere else, including Oracle's documentation. RMAN recipes gives DBAs specific examples on how to solve problems and then goes into detail on how and why the database works like it does.

This is the best book I have found for information on utilizing RMAN. It is well written and I like the problem/solution approach. There are many practical examples and many of my questions have been answered in a short time. That is very refreshing after much Internet surfing and reading other Oracle references which do not get to the point. There is a lot of backup support information, regarding log files and the flash recovery area etc. This information is very helpful and to the point. I recommend this book to anyone involved in Oracle backups. I normally don't give anything 5 stars but in this case I'll make an exception, due to the relief of stress that I have enjoyed at a low cost.

Format: Paperback
This is an excellent book that I ever had. This book provides us what we need to do in a step by step method for all imaginable scenarios. This may look repetitive but it provides the complete solution in that fashion rather making us to scrape through different chapters and leaving us in doubt on what to do. If some one is looking for rman internal algorithms, they can search elsewhere. But if they are trying to have a book that could provide easy, quick and straight forward solutions in a crisis, this is the one they might need. This really helped me to troubleshoot and resolve the issues on different occassions.RMAN Recipes for Oracle Database 11g: A Problem-Solution Approach (Expert's Voice in Oracle)
