Subject Re: Cassandra book/tuturial

Reading previous version's documentation and related information from that
time in the past (like books) has value!  It helps to understand decisions
that were made and changed and some that are still the same.... like
Secondary Indexes which were introduced in 0.7 when
http://www.amazon.com/Cassandra-Definitive-Guide-Eben-Hewitt/dp/1449390412came
out back in 2011.

If you are really just getting started then I say go and start here
