I can program in java, python and JavaScript. But I am the best at Java. And the book seems like to be using Python and JavaScript, Does it matter and which language to choose if I can read the book better? And other background required?

I think that you'd get the most out of it if you already had a basic knowledge of Python and MongoDB (completing the online tutorials would be more than enough). If you have basic familiarity with Python, you should be fine with the examples in the book. Likewise with Javascript (I'm not much of a Javascript programmer myself, but it's impossible to say much about MongoDB without mentioning Javascript, since it's the embedded scripting language).
