really liked it

The book is great if you want to learn Cassandra by getting your hand dirty.

The book walks through some useful fundamentals of Cassandra in a clear structure - partition key, clustering key, column family, clustering, java driver. They are OK explanation, not so different from what's covered in DataStax docs.

However, the handy code example is where it shines.

The book introduces these concepts by setting up and completing "my_status" - A simplified Twitter backend app. It stores data in Cassandra, and different data are stored differently. As the book walkthroughs the data model design process combining the need of the app and the features of Cassandra, readers can sense what makes Cassandra different from SQL, from a very practical perspective. Another good thing is, it focuses on the data storage layer, leaving the application layer untouched, as that will be less relevant to Cassandra.
