This one is coming out soon. Looks interesting:


Beside that , I found the already mentioned docs on the Datastax site to be the best information.

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/1449390412 came out back in 2011.

If you are really just getting started then I say go and start here http://www.planetcassandra.org/

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Unfortunately, as tech books tend to be, it's quite a bit out of date, at this point.
