# Cary's book is deceptively small.  And brilliant.  And filled to overflow with amazing thinks.  But the methodology assumes clear and comprehensive knowledge of the basics, and the other two nail that

aspect.  This is a case of "the sum is huge bunches more than the parts."


Sorry not understanding where any of his chapters do not start with an overview of where they are going and why and give references.  It's all in there ... like progresso soup.  Start with the preface and jump right in ... documents what it is and what is is not.  The methodology is complete and documented. 

Obviously it could reference other material that is now available but was not at the time of publication.

What parts of the basics are you feeling is not covered?  It references the concepts manual.  It notes that it is not a system admin or oracle admin reference.
