I still the robert freeman and mathew hart book. The RMAN receipes book somehow looks to me for a person who doesnt an much experience with RMAN although i have it i dont use it much often.

For datagaurd and streams i always refer to the MAA docs and the Oracle documentation.

There is a Oracle RAC and high availaibility book but again i did not like it much.

Kirti Deshpande who had authored oracle performance tuning 101 is planning to come out with a book for Oracle streams but i am not sure when it would be available.
