Just in time for IBM IOD in October will  be a new DB2 book by Tony Andrews.  Tony is known as “Tony the Tuner”.  Check out his bio and you will agree he’s the “Tuner” to write this book:

Tony Andrews has more than 23 years’ experience in the development of IBM DB2 relational database applications. Most of this time, he has provided development and consulting services to Fortune 500 companies and government agencies. Tony has written literally thousands of queries and programs during his development years, and has also served as a DB2 database analyst. For the last 10 years, Tony has been splitting his time between performance and tuning consulting engagements and DB2 training. His main focus is to teach today’s developers the ways of RDMS application design, development and SQL programming — always with a special emphasis on improving performance.
