Review at amazon: Oracle 11g R1/R2 Real Application Clusters Essentials

Last week i read Oracle 11g R1/R2 Real Application Clusters Essentials.

Ok, the cover is really cool (does anybody know, if this is a real city?), but the content (500 pages) is missing any coolness. Only three of the twelve chapters do contain informations, you cannot easily google...
The description shows the problem:
Basic understanding of Oracle DBA is required. No experience of Oracle RAC is required.
Is it really possible to describe Oracle RAC within 500 pages for Newbies? All essentials? Perhaps RAC is so easy, that after introducing HA, RAC architecture and installation (100 pages) the rest is enough.
If you are interested, take a look at my review at amazon.de (like all my reviews: written in german ;-).
