I visited HADOOP website. It looks vary complicated and is composed of many parts. Does your book make this new technology easier to implement, understand and use.

Yes. I wrote the book because I heard the same frustrations from many people. Hadoop has a steep learning curve not because it's complicated, but because it's novel. Also, like many open source projects, a lot of the documentation are organized for reference rather than for learning. I intend my book for the general Java programmer with no background in distributed computing or data processing.

At first trial it was a little bit easier than I supposed to be. Due to clustering facilities, I was expecting something very hard to setup, but wasn't.
