Well written, good book. However how fast Hive/hadoop is moving, I think this book will be out of data (already is in parts) soon. I'm assuming they'll come out with updated v2 of the book in the future.

Good book - I used it to study for a presentation I needed to give our group at work. It's needing an update with Impala/Stinger/Presto now available to improve performance.

It's a great resource, and remains on my desk; however it already feels outdated (bought in October 2012.) There are many commands and functions that aren't in this book for whatever reason.

Still, a great start - the floodgates should be open to Hive reference material!

Coming from the days when the only Hive documentation was the Apache.org wiki, this book is a godsend.

Very readable by mere mortals, it gives clear, concise explanations of how Hive works as well as tips and trick for performance.

People new to Hive will get a grasp of the power of Hive. Old hands will probably pick up a few tricks and nuances.

And did I mention it's quite readable--not like a lot of tech books. Thats very strong praise right there.

Hive lacks a good documentation to refer and this book fills-in that. Recommend it to anybody willing to get their hands in Hive.

This is by far the most complete and precise documentation about Hive.
If you have enough knowledge of Java and are familiar with Hive code, this book helps you a lot to manipulate Hive code.
Though I expected more programming lessons and implementation details on Hive from the title.

Nice introductory summary of a topic I really needed to have in my stock. Hope to get enough time to read them all.
