While I can't comment on the writing style (that's for the readers to judge), Neo4j In Action introduces reader to the Neo4j graph database using a lot of hands-on examples and executable code - not dissimilar of Spring in Action book.
Neo4j in Action is written primarily for developers making a foray into graph databases and I hope you will find it a useful resource as such.
Always! Wait. Never. Shut up. Look at this tiny ad.
