Usually I (as a customer) require few things in good book - some value added over documentation.
It sometimes means exactly an explaination of complex things in clear way. And certainly not description of "every" page of OEM - I do not read them for example, what would be really interested are procedures to diagnose SQL (using OEM), to set Data Guard working, etc - more in a way of O'Reilly "... Cookbooks".

just my 3 cents, hope book will be good :-) Remigiusz
