Of course that should be safaribooksonline.com – A Joint Venture between O'Reilly and Pearson Publishing - unless you want to visit some Giraffes…

The book is available via safarionline.com - many educational institutions have group memberships and there is a free trial for individuals. It's run by the publishers and the authors get paid. There is a nosql training video there as well.

Can't I get it for free from anywhere? I am a student researching on Cassandra datastore and have no economically profitable reasons to buy?

If anyone of you could pass me a copy to my email address: asdkl93@gmail.com

Thanks so much !
