One of the best!
This is one of the best new features book that I have seen in quite some time. It goes beyond the high-level overview of the new 10g features and give working examples about how the features relate to existing Oracle9i systems.
This is one book that I expect to use very frequently as I get started in 10g.

I should have known better ...
... than to spend money on this book. It was released prior to the 10g production release and suffers from being based on the beta release and not checked against the final release/feature set. Also the layout is poor, at the same standard as other Rampant press books I've seen. Illustrations looks like they're photo-copied. I'd recommend waiting for Robert Freeman's 10g New Features book. RF's RMAN and 9i New Features books were great, I am sure the 10g one will be a winner.

Not bad, not great
Not bad, not great. Mr Ault and Co. have a fair book. I feel that it might have been written in a bit of haste, and that it was written using the Beta version of 10g, as there are some things in it that did not work just quite right. Still, some good information and I'm glad I bought it. Looking forward to Freemans book as well.
