Hi Kyle,

I am completely new to the concept of NoSQL databases,(I have experience with relational databases like SQL Server,Oracle,mysql etc)

Is MongoDB in action the right book to get started with NoSQL databases, does it explain the key concepts and provide some hands on?

Hi Arun,

The first chapter of the book provides an overview of many NoSQL technologies and compares them to MongoDB. But the book is really devoted to MongoDB. If you'd like a deep dive into a single technology, then this will be a good book. But if you just want to learn about all these technologies as a whole, there are probably better resources.

I agree. Here's the link:
