He explained most of the thing short and clear that you could follow immediately.
Minh Tran
The depth of content is balanced well between simple recipes and more complex topics, leaning more towards the later.

The MariaDB Cookbook is well written by someone who knows the MariaDB database server quite well.

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.

Disclosure -- I received a copy of this book from the publisher for review.

The MariaDB Cookbook is well written by someone who knows the MariaDB database server quite well. Writing a 300 page book by yourself is no small feat and Daniel has done it with aplomb. I am most familiar with Percona server and Oracle's MySQL server but I have been interested in MariaDB for some of its new features -- especially the multi-source replication. I took a look at this section in particular and it was well done with clear step by step instructions on how to accomplish multi-source replication. Each of the recipes follow this pattern with clear, concise steps. My only complaint about the cookbook items are that they might be that they are a little too concise at times -- although to Daniel's credit there are frequent See Also sections that point to deeper details.

As I read through the cookbook I kept thinking "this needs a comparison chart". For those who aren't familiar with the MySQL ecosystem there are three primary systems: MySQL Server (by Oracle), Percona Server (by Percona) and MariaDB which is more of a community-driven server supported primarily by the MariaDB Foundation and SkySQL. There are many similarities of course, and a database administrator would have no issue with moving from system to system. However, there are enough differences that a comparison chart would be very useful for the reader. I assume that the author and publisher feel that a comparison chart isn't relevant, but a one page chart in the front of the book comparing systems would be useful for a beginner.

This book would be very useful in my consulting business. An intermediate level consultant could take this cookbook and use it to perform many tasks with minimal oversight. It's a great reference manual for common problems that come up in your day to day administration work.

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.
