We are just starting on the 11g version of the RMAN book.... Not sure when it will be out... It will include material not in the other book you mention... :-) Might be worth the wait!! :-)

I'm looking to brush up a bit on my RMAN knowledge, especially in the 11g arena as we begin to plan upgrades of various systems. I already have Oracle Database 10g RMAN Backup & Recovery (Matthew Hart and Robert Freeman), which has proven to be an invaluable resource, and am no stranger to the Oracle documentation.

Any opinions on RMAN Recipes for Oracle Database 11g (Darl Kuhn, Sam R. Alapati, and Arup Nanda)? Do you think this would make a solid addition, or is it more of an entry-level reference?

On a semi-related note, I'm also looking for a good book on streams and Change Data Capture, for a project which is expected to ramp up in the near future... initially under 10gR2, but moving to 11g later this year. Any suggestions?
