Author did great job to organize the contents and keeping chapters focused on key components of Hadoop with good exercises.
Downgrading to 1 star after spending the week going back and forth with customer service for the publisher to try to find out where the content for the exercises can be found. The preface of the book mentions that the content can be found in an AWS S3 bucket, but offers no details on how to get to this. I had to take a screen shot of this and send to support, after which they told me to contact Amazon since it is in AWS.
Every other book I have ever bought has made it quite easy to find downloads for exercises. But for this book, it seems impossible making the book essentially useless.
Don't get me wrong, it's nicely written, clear and to the point, but it's much more about "what can be done on Hadoop" than "this is how you can get it done on Hadoop". Yes there are examples, but so basic I would not even call them toy examples. I actually love books that start from the abc, but not the ones that stop there..
Maybe a reasonable use case for this book is for a non technical person who needs a "I need to know what are we talking about" kind of overview. For technical people you can save the intro chapters on Hive and Pig, but there's not much else of real value. Pity, because I really like the author's style..
I don 't even know if writing a really useful book on Hadoop is even possible, given that it would turn out to be about 1500 pages..Maybe a "learning path" made by a sequence of a few books specializing on each of its most fundamental components would be a good idea..
