I call this content a "living book" as so many people have asked me when am I going to write an Oracle internals or troubleshooting book.

The answer is never, if talking about regular old fashioned printed-on-paper books. I think the subject just changes too fast, also it takes at least a year of full time work to come up with a book which would be any good and by the time of publishing many details would already be outdated.

That's why I will build my Oracle tuning, troubleshooting guides and performance reference here and call it a living book as the content will constantly evolve here.
