This book has been around for some time and it is what it says "a must have for DBA moving to these new products". The book is lengthy but easy to read with good examples. I found it interesting in particular chapter 11 on Exadata and RAC.
Useful read to understand the DBA role and the performance aspects of the Oracle Database.
This book is for DBA's and the other comment I have is it might be nice to include more on the developer perspective? Maybe.
