When I strolled into the office this morning, a copy of this book was waiting on my chair. Jonathan Lewis is the God of understanding the Oracle cost-based optimizer (CBO), and "Cost-Based Oracle Fundamentals" is his Bible, Ten Commandments, and the Holy Grail fused together. Plus JL has an awesome beard.
So books I'm concurrently reading are the Oracle 10g DBA Handbook, the Oracle 10g OCA/OCP exam guide, Enterprise Javabeans 3.0, and now this. I don't even miss WoW. On a side note, a co-worker had his account banned for being a dirty botter. HAW.
