MongoDB: The Definitive Guide 2nd Edition is Out!

MongoDB: The Definitive Guide

The second edition of MongoDB: The Definitive Guide is now available from O’Reilly! It covers both developing with and administering MongoDB. The book is language-agnostic: almost all of the examples are in JavaScript.

Upgrading from a previous edition?

If you have read the first edition, the new edition covers a lot of new material (it is twice as long!). Everything has been updated and lots of sections on new features have been added.


I hear O’Reilly is working with their translators to get this edition translated into other languages, but I tend to be the last to hear about that so I don’t know what the schedule is.


Pick up a copy and let me know what you think!

    That’s a gorgeous mongoose lemur on the cover.

    Congrats! Bet you are glad that is done 🙂 I had a hard time spending all that O’Reilly credit for the review – now my reading list is ridiculous…..

    Thanks! I’m glad they gave you guys so much credit, enjoy!

    Yeah, O’Reilly originally got the covers from 19th-century woodcuts. I think they started having the art department make them from scratch, but it’s a nice style.

    Hope it comes to china soon.
