Brand new book on RMAN Backup & Recovery out!

Finally it has been published:
the ultimat RMAN book for Oracle 10g
by M. Hart & R. Freeman!

I have been waiting for the 10g version of the book since quite a while already.
It was one of the very good books for Oracle 9i and I can tell you that the new one is as good.

ISBN: 0072263172 / 9780072263176
What I like most about the book:
- It contains a number of workshop for advanced recovery scenarios and
points out all these RMAN functionalities which are much too less used and know like BLOCK RECOVERY, PROACTIVE CHECKING FOR CORRUPT BLOCKS and so on.
- it has good index
- it contains info about memory utilization of RMAN for tuning

The book also covers new 10g features, such as Flashback, Transportable Tablespaces Cross Platform ...

It is a must for everybody who needs to know how RMAN works and how to utilize it to the max.
