"This is a very well written book and highly useful book for those interested in learning and getting started with major modern types of data stores. "
--Edmon Begoli, Amazon.com

"If you have any reason to use or consider using anything other than a more traditional relational database, and aren’t sure which one to try out of the exploding number of new options, this book will help you make sense of the field and better evaluate your options against your current needs. I recommend it."
--Matthew Helmke, MatthewHelmke.net

"This book gives great and structured overview of modern databases, and doesn't delve too deep. Nor should it, as it currently gives all the knowledge you need to choose one database to suit your needs."
--Mirko Zorz, Help Net Security

"I highly recommend this text/workbook approach for a thorough understanding of the features and benefits of modern database techniques including NoSQL and Distributed/Concurrent/Fault Tolerant/In the Cloud."
--Ira Laefsky, Amazon.com
