    Poll: Best book on Oracle Performance/Design/Architecture/Planning

    Gents/Ladies,

    I'm proposing this poll in the wake of all that scathing attack which I see some individuals are inflicting on the other "successful" knowledgeable individuals of the same community.

    DBASupport.com is an independent forum where professionals come seeking answers to questions which bother them in day to day life and others who come in with the sheer will to learn more from other knowledgeable professionals.

    So the poll is should a book be written on oracle database, which one would you choose? The poll will last for the coming 90 days. So keep them coming.

    This is a honest poll about oracle(database enthusiasts). Idea is to get as many replies here.

    So, WHICH BOOK WOULD YOU BUY?

    Thanks,

    Tarry Singh

    I'm developing a very warped sense of humour - so I'd buy the second one as well

    After-thought:
    Perhaps I could soon be the "Grandpa DBA 30yrs exp." and share the royalties too! (My first DBA job started 25 years ago!)

    Hi Tarry,

    Can't tell you how the whole DB world looked. My little corner of it was flat file DB, using IBM's ISAM - I guess IOT is the nearest that Oracle has to that. I then spent many years with a network DB - hashed keys for direct access and chained records for the rest . . . (In those days table=file, row=record and column=field - it took me ages to change my vocabulary - I still slip occasionally) . . . . and we used Syncsort for FTS - fantatsic performance, if your files were aligned on cylinder boundaries!

    Maybe there should have been only two options -
    1. NOT (Don/Mike)
    2. (Don/Mike).

    I would not mind reading books from any author except the above two. Hate to pay to read something that is proven wrong million times in open forums round internet.
