About the Author
Pramod J. Sadalage, Principal Consultant at ThoughtWorks, enjoys the rare role of bridging the divide between database professionals and application developers. He regularly consults with clients who have particularly challenging data needs requiring new technologies and techniques. He developed pioneering techniques that allowed relational databases to be designed in an evolutionary manner based on version-controlled schema migrations. With Scott Ambler, he coauthored Refactoring Databases(Addison-Wesley, 2006).
Martin Fowler, Chief Scientist at ThoughtWorks, focuses on better ways to design software systems and improve developer productivity. His books include Patterns of Enterprise Application Architecture; UML Distilled, Third Edition; Domain-Specific Languages (with Rebecca Parsons); and Refactoring: Improving the Design of Existing Code (with Kent Beck, John Brant, and William Opdyke). All are published by Addison-Wesley.

If you are starting up on NoSql, this is the text you should refer to. I have read it cover to cover, and I found it really good to start with. The book has just enough information to get an intuition about NoSql databases. Moreover, you can finish it within a weeks time. The text touches many important concepts of distributed systems such as CAP theorem and how to implement order in a distributed system. If you go and read about vector clocks from a textbook as a starter, it would not make much sense. Once you have the basic understanding of its application, reading
an advanced text would enlighten you.
I loved each and every aspect of this book.
It explains that why the Big Data is NOT a replacement for RDBMS.
A confusion that most of the beginners have.
Awesome Author....Awesome Book.
You may also go through some of the videos by Martin Fowler, on Youtube. Really great.
