Good reference for daily work

In contrast to the books "ElasticSearch Server" and "Mastering ElasticSearch"
the "ElasticSearch Cookbook" is definitely a hands-on, how-to-do book.

The most important topics are covered :

- Explanation of the concept (it is simply different from the traditional RDBMS)
- Installation
- Indexing, Mapping, Query, Filtering of documents
- Spatial Queries (could be a bit more detailed, but ok so far)
- Optimizing of the Index (ES can "eat" TBs of unstructured data, here some ideas how the index can be structured)
- Scripting
- Infrastructural/Scalability aspects (ES scales pretty good - out of the box)
- Monitoring, controlling (What/how to do when you want to put ES to production)

So in general a useful book for those who want to know how to do a concrete task - for developers as well
for sysops.
