    Comments about oreilly MongoDB: The Definitive Guide:

    The Authors made an excellent work.
    Concise, clear, a lot of example that explain better some functions.

    The lack is a section goes deep in the Document Design aimed at who is used to work and design data with RDMS.
    I suggest to add in this one the project about the "never was" book "Document Design for MongoDB".
