Recently I have received a request to review the book "Oracle Database 11g Underground Advice for Database Administrators" by April C. Sims
I was happy to have the opportunity to know some details about the author, she is an active contributor to the Oracle DBA community, through her blog "Oracle High Availability" .
The book is a serious and interesting work, I think it provides a good study and reference guide for DBA's that want to understand and implement highly available environments.
She starts walking over the more general aspects and skills required by a DBA and then goes on explaining the steps required to implement Data Guard, using RMAN, upgrading to 11g, etc.
