About the Author
Robert Freeman has been an Oracle DBA for almost 15 years. He currently lives in Chicago, where he works for TUSC as a management consultant. Robert presents at Oracle-related user groups such as IOUG-A and the UKOUG on a regular basis. He is the author of three other best-selling Oracle Press titles, Oracle Database 10g New Features, Oracle 9i RMAN Backup & Recovery, and Oracle9i New Features. Robert is the father of five teenagers, husband of a wife who is incredible, and the owner of a moody cat. In his spare time he works on getting his third-degree black belt in tae kwon do and sits at the edge of local runways with a sign that says "Will DBA for blocks of flight time."

This book is just what is claims to be: a portable reference for topics such as creating/removing a database, managing undo/rollback segments, building indexes and using the import/export utilities. This is just some of the subject matter covered. There are also appendices containing Oracle syntax, data dictionary views and initialization parameters.
Note that this book is not a tutorial and assumes you are knowledgeable in at least the basics of being an Oracle DBA. Having said that, it is full of examples to help jog your memory in how to use a certain command as well as giving you enough infomation so that you can research a command more fully in other reference materials.
Lest I forget, Mr. Freeman's writing style is easy to read and instructional without getting too technical. He knows his stuff and knows how to teach as well.
At just under 600 pages, you will not be carrying this in your back pocket. But, if you want one DBA reference book to take with you in your travels, this is the one.

Another great feature of the book is the error sections. Robert has included the typical errors that you may run into when issuing commands. Then provides possible causes and solutions. It's all right there without having to search Metalink or Oracle's documentation.
I highly recommend this book. It has been a welcome member in my book collection and has replaced a number of them.
This is a good book If you are looking for a mini and heavy Reference Manual instead of the online help or Oracle Documentation CD.
For all those who are used to the old Oracle Handbook, this is nothing but a replica of it with a cool name.
For all those who want to add a book to the book shelf , it is a piece to add to increase the numbers. But for people who are keen to keep the bookshelf with usable books, this is not the right book.
