With lot of enthusiasm i started reading it. Its out-dated, error prone. I could not even get Cassandra running from that book. Eventually i could not get start with cassandra.

http://www.planetcassandra.org has a lot of great resources on it.

Eben Hewitt's book is great, as are the other C* books like the High Performance Cookbook http://www.amazon.com/Cassandra-Performance-Cookbook-Edward-Capriolo/dp/1849515123

I would recommend reading both of those books.  You can also read http://www.datastax.com/dev/blog/thrift-to-cql3 to help understandings.

>From there go with CQL http://cassandra.apache.org/doc/cql3/CQL.html

Unfortunately, as tech books tend to be, it's quite a bit out of date, at this point.
