Comments about oreilly Graph Databases, 2nd Edition:

This books is a short read, and I highly recommend you simply go through it cover to cover. For those new to graphs both as a data storage or analytical tool -- this is the book for you! The book explains very well what graphs are and how to use them.

There aren't very many graph databases: Orient, Titan, Neo4j are probably the most well known. This book covers Cypher and Neo4j. However, the book doesn't focus on Neo4j for that database's sake, it focuses on a broader discussion of graphs and the challenges and benefits of using them for NoSQL.

Comments about oreilly Graph Databases, 2nd Edition:

I bought this book in the expectation that it would be a thorough overview of Graph Databases.

It turns out to be so specific to Neo4j that I was left feeling duped.

A better title would be "Graph Databases with Neo4j"

All the authors work for Neo4j.

There is not a single mention of Tinkerpop in the text.

Gremlin is mentioned once, in passing.

Most readers will discover this stuff, eventually. Pity its not in the book.
