"If you have any reason to use or consider using anything other than a more traditional relational database, and arent 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
