5.0 out of 5 stars Great book is you want to know how Oracle really works, 8 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As usual Jonathan has produced a book that covers a subject that is very complex and manages to boil it down to the essentials and explain it in clear language. As he makes clear it is no easy task to decide where to start with Oracle database, but I think that he has done a great job in the way that the book is organized and as usual he has challenged me to think about how the databases I work on day to day are configured.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book is about getting to know how Oracle works, 31 Mar 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Oracle Core: Essential Internals for Dbas and Developers (Expert's Voice in Databases) (Paperback)
Oracle Core is a book about how Oracle really works - the internal secrets (or the core of Oracle). Jonathan takes away a lot of the details you often read about in other Oracle books: The stuff you'll also find in the Oracle documentation. In an nice and easy way Jonathan explains the core of important features as undo and redo, transactions, locks and latches, and about parsing and optimizing. By reading this book Jonathan - for instance - made me look into block dumps. This, along with Jonathans explainations, have given me some new insite about the Oracle database.
