Oracle Database 10g Real Application Clusters Handbook

I have just received the recent new book (FEB. 2007!)
by K. Gopalakrishnan
Oracle Database 10g Real Application Clusters Handbook


Gopalakrishnan is a Senior Principal Consultant in Oracle Corporation and was avarded "Oracle Author of the year 2005" by Oracle Magazine in for his 2005 published book "Oracle Wait Interface", which was one of the few books of the last year about Oracle which were really worth their money. Pls see my post about this book also.

After having a first glance at the new book I am very enthusiastic about it, because it contains large chapters about cache fusion (36 pages!) and the Global Resource Directory GRD (>20 pages) explained from scratch , amoung other intereseting chapters about troubleshooting RAC, RAC deployment...
Again we find the high quality we already have enjoyed in Gopalakrishnan´s Wait Interface book, and I bet it will be a success story as well.
