The book contains many useful information. I especially liked two chapters: "Architecture" and "Installation / Requirements" about necessary hardware and tuning it to work with HBase.

This book is comprehensive guide to HBase - starting from base things, like installing it, performing basic operations, etc., it continues to more advanced techniques like coprocessors, integration with map/reduce, and finishing with maintenance and performance tuning.
If you're interested in work with HBase, then this book will be best source of information...

Good intro to Hbase, and great as an ongoing reference. Could have done a much better job introducing good patterns of schema design (examples use padded ascii versions of numbers in primary keys for example, when in real life one would probably be better off using the byte representation of the number)

This is the book to read if you are interested in HBase - its well written and covers all areas.
And at this point this is the only book on HBase, so you no option :)

Probably too much information for a single book. I was quite tired when I finished reading it. :)
