"Oracle DBA" is the perfect read if you have never used Oracle tools and don't know where to begin. Just as importantly, if you are stuck with installing and maintaining an Oracle database on a Linux system, this book shows you the basics. I haven't read through the entire book yet, but given that I know *nothing* about Oracle and very little about Linux, what I've read so far has already put me in control of my database. How "deep" this book goes into administration I don't know yet, but so far it has provided for my most immediate needs.
This book is not for you if you are just learning fundamental database principles. If you don't know what a database schema is, or if you don't know how to write SQL, for example, you need to read something else. This book probably isn't for you if you are an experienced Oracle DBA and are looking for advanced techniques.
I would definitely recommend this book. I liked it so much that I would buy 10 more copies :P if I could!!
