This review is from: Data-Intensive Text Processing with MapReduce (Synthesis Lectures on Human Language Technologies) (Paperback)
The book is educating and, hopefully, will be helpful for writing map-reduce programs. It concentrates not on API, but on algorithms, which is rare and should be appreciated. Text-processing is a good example of data-intensive processing, but the book may be useful in many other fields.
