- There is no information in this book that you can't easily get online. This would be fine (and to be expected) if it were at all well organized, which it isn't.
- The book is incredibly short, so it's not like it's a compendium of information that would have otherwise been hard to find from a variety of online sources. Moreover, no clue is given to where to find further information when a topic is introduced (eg "Note: It is recommended to keep the key and row cache configuration default values, which should only be changed after a detailed analysis." How you might do such analysis, when you might know to do it or even where to go for more information is, apparently, an exercise for the reader.)
- The explanations are poor and sometimes incorrect (eg Definition of a "decentralized systems": "systems that provide maximum throughput from each node")
- The grammar is so bad it makes the book jarring and hard to read. When not incorrect, it is awkward. ("JPA is a standard specification and has been widely used in the industry since a long time.")
- The organization is atrocious. For example, the section titled "Hands on with the Cassandra command-line interface" is mostly about defining basic cassandra concepts like keyspaces, column families and so on. These concepts are all bullet points at the same level as "Cassandra-cli" which is where you actually learn about the cassandra command-line interface. Where by "learn about" I mean you are told that it exists and how to invoke it. There is nothing "hands-on" about this section except that it ends by telling you how to invoke the cli.
I would say "It's as if the publisher spent no time reviewing the book for content, organization, and grammar" except that it's not AS IF that happened -- I'm pretty sure that is ACTUALLY what happened.
I am requesting a refund on this disaster.
This books seems to be just outline whats available in datastax website for beginners.
This doesn't add any value if you are looking to get started with Cassandra.
To help developers to get started, the book presents main java drivers like Hector, Kundera and Astyanax, focusing on Kundera and Hector.
Cons: There is no reference to java-driver, developed by DataStax, that includes asynchronous support and use native transport.
