About the Author
Clinton Gormley was the first user of Elasticsearch and wrote the Perl API back in 2010. When Elasticsearch formed a company in 2012, he joined as a developer and the maintainer of the Perl modules. Now Clinton spends a lot of his time designing the user interfaces and speaking and writing about Elasticsearch. He studied medicine at UCT in Cape Town and lives in Barcelona.
Zachary Tong has been working with Elasticsearch since 2011. During that time, he has written a number of tutorials to help beginners start using Elasticsearch. Zach is now a developer at Elasticsearch and maintains the PHP client, gives trainings and helps customers manage clusters in production. He studied biology at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and now lives in South Carolina.

Strong recommend on this, absolutely delighted it's on my book shelf.
The book mentions that ElasticSearch's RESTful API can be accessed using tools from largely every language (eg Python), but makes no mention of issues that come from using python's "requests" library. A section on language-specific implementation (if only a brief primer on the use of ElasticSearch's wonderful Python library) would have been helpful while retaining the language independence that the book is right to pursue.
All of these would normally be "nice-to-have" features, but I expected a bit more given how I kept having to refer back to the official documentation as I read.
I'm a database developer, expert in Oracle, SQL Server, and MySQL. But I knew nothing of Elasticsearch. When my boss wanted a product catalog database moved from MySQL to Elasticsearch I needed help. This book was just the ticket.
