Rest of the chapters mostly concentrated on minute details of configuration of a host of different parameters.
I was looking for a book - that gave back to the readers more on the conceptual side of Hadoop and on Map Reduce - with examples of being able to solve different flavour of problems.
I just skimmed over the chapters from chapter 3 onwards - since I found the configuration details too detailed.
However, if you consider from the point of view - of how difficult it can be to setup Hadoop - may be the configurations as discussed from Chapter 3 onwards are essential.
Now that Cloudera has come up with an easy to install Hadoop install - going though configuration and setup in a book at a very detailed level seems not necessary.
The pictures and diagrams ( though very few on this book ) are not very helpful and I felt were not thoughtfully made.
The Kindle edition of this book is perfectly readable on my 6" Kindle 2, although the code samples are significantly lighter than the rest of the text.
i recommend this 10/10 (Make sure you get the book with latest hadoop API updates)
