This book follows the recipe format perfectly with useful recipes.

Optimization and Tuning are also mentioned * Some very specific features for MariaDB like Dynamic & Virtual Columns are understandable and able to apply easily.

This is a very useful book but the title is not exactly correct. This is not what one usually thinks of as a cookbook and to be fair the author states this in the introduction.
This book isn't chock full of the usual how to create users. how to create tables ......, rather the author recommends you get an intro book for that. What this book does have is good coverage of advanced features of MariaDB. To name a few , changing storage engines (Tokudb,Connect,NoSQL), replication including Galera cluster, Sphinx text search, dynamic and virtual columns.
This book is excellent in this regard it will make you aware of features you may not have known even existed and for that reason I would recommend buying it.

The MariaDB Cookbook says it's a book for people wanting to get to know MariaDB, specifically if they already have experience with databases and want to know what sets MariaDB apart. True to its word, the book starts by introducing a concise but comprehensive set of recipes ranging from simple backups to the first steps in setting up a highly performant, secure and scalable database infrastructure.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone who already has set up and/or administrated a database and is considering taking a closer look at MariaDB, or for anyone who has done simple things with MariaDB and would like to see a few options on how to scale their infrastructure. I found the book contained quite a few inspiring chapters on how to tune performance or usability in ways tailored to your specific needs. It also has some really interesting sections on setting up durable database clusters for the purpose of redundance, load balancing, etc. I would not recommend it to anybody who is unfamiliar with databases in general or to people who already know what they want to do and are wanting to understand the theory and processes involved on a more in-depth level. This is not the MariaDB Cookbook's intended audience.

That said, if you are looking for quick tutorials that explain exactly what you need to know - and not more - in order to familiarize yourself with MariaDB, you'll find the MariaDB Cookbook fits your needs precisely. It gives you a well-organized and concise glimpse into the world of MariaDB and also tells you where you can find additional information if you're interested in pursuing the background.

It is a bit complicated give my opinion about this book, the thing is that I expected more, let's see it this way, I bought the digital copy and it is OK, but, I will be very disappointed if I had bought the printed book since I think $45 is to much for this book.

All the recipes are good, but I like a bit more technical explanation since I like to understand the thinks I am doing.

MariaDB is being prescribed as a venerable offshoot of the proven MySQL database technology yet it has surpassed comfortably its parent on several aspects in order to be a quick choice for many kinds of enterprise-scale and multi-tier applications. This book, not only provides a comprehensive introduction but also details all the latest developments around and on this fast-evolving database system. Besides the explanation of the installation, configuration, optimization and tuning of MariaDB, the author had tried to convey a lot of advanced topics that have a direct synchronization with the database in a seamless and sequential fashion. For example, he has described about the replication aspect in MariaDB. The chapter titled as "Replication with MariaDB Galera Cluster" includes recipes that cover how to install and use this new clustering solution. It seems that the author has a leaning towards multiple search engines (TokuDB Storage Engine CONNECT Storage Engine and Cassandra Storage Engine) and has explained the nitty-gritty in a spectacular style. There is an interesting chapter "Searching Data Using Sphinx" that covers how to install and use this useful full-text database indexer and search engine. Finally there is a separate chapter for MariaDB Security

Precisely speaking, this book is telling a compact and convincing story about the new database "MariaDB". I am doubly sure that this book is an awesome for developers, architects, evangelists, DB administrators, and consultants.
