This book can probably justify its cost by removing the 10g bit from its title.
There is very little information about 10g [except Appendix A, which is simply defn of terms]. In general, this book is very shallow.
I was completely disappointed.

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.
