Few days ago the second edition of Troubleshooting Oracle Performance was finally published. Today, I updated the pages on this site that provide information about the book. It goes without saying that the new pages cover the second edition. Hence, from here you can access the description, the table of contents, the forewords written by Jonathan Lewis and Cary Millsap, as well as a page with some errata. Yes, as for the first edition, I found some small errors before receiving the first printed copy of the book. I will publish the page from where you can download the scripts referenced in the book in few days.
Note that some of the information provided by online book stores (e.g. Amazon), still have to be updated. For example, they show a wrong cover and provide a completely wrong number of pages.
I’m glad to hear that :-) … two weeks ago, after several “smaller” postponements, I received a notification from Amazon.de that your book would be published in December only, and I was very disappointed ;-)
Strangely, on Amazon.de they still say so, and I haven’t received an update yet … I just hope that’s an error on Amazon.de, or else I’ll cancel there and re-order on Amazon.com…
The date on amazon.de is wrong. E.g., according to amazon.com it’s in stock. So, if I were you, I would wait few more days before cancelling the order. In fact, it should be available very very soon.
Perfect, thanks, so I’ll wait :-)
How many changes have been updated to this second edition? Just think about a purchase on ebook or printed book.
BTW, The book cover on amazon seems not to be black as shown on this page :)
