I found Cary's book outstanding.
1. Coverage on generating and understanding extended sql trace is excellent.
2. One of the very few book on Oracle tuning, which deals with a "methodology". I have read several books before this on optimizing Oracle performance and none explains any methodology. This book instead of diving straight into v$ view and statspack data, first makes a ground of what approach should be taken. So its like, what needs to be done and then how to do that.
I find this book incredibly useful.
