Orace Core Essential Internals for DBAs and Developers

When I wrote Practical Oracle 8i, there was a three-week lag between publication and the first e-mail asking me when I was going to produce a 9i version of the book—thanks to Larry Ellison’s timing of the launch of 9i. That question has been repeated many times (with changes in version number) over the last 12 years. This book is about as close as I’m going to come to writing a second edition of the book— but it only covers the first chapter (and a tiny bit of the second and third) of the original.
