Is it readable for Big Data "ignorant" people ? If not, what additional reading would you recommend ?

Thanks,

Jan

It is accessible. We even gave a couple of the early chapters to the sales guys to be able to explain Mondrian. ;-)

We start from the basics, explaining what Mondrian is, where it fits in the technical landscape, and what it's good for. A non-technical person might not be as interested in some of the more technical, later chapters, but well over half the book is very useful for what and how Mondrian works.

Echoing what Bill said, we do hope it's accessible. We also point out some other useful resources in an appendix (books websites) that are also good places to get going. Hope you enjoy the book!
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
