I’m more and more enjoying the O’Reilly Getting Started guides. They provide a good introduction to cutting edge topics, and this one is no exception. I’ve been interested in learning about noSQL datastores, and learning more about CouchDB is always good. The book starts by introducing each of the topics in it’s title, giving a short informative chapter to each. Informative enough to be useful if you don’t know much about the tool, but not too long as to bore someone who knows a lot about it. The book then includes hooking them all together walking through a couple of practical examples.
I’d highly recommend this book to anyone wanting to learn more about the topics in the title. Essentially it does what it says on the tin.
