    Comments about oreilly Pentaho Analytics for MongoDB:

    I received a copy of this book via the MongoDB roadshow that Pentaho sponsored. The first two chapters set the stage by giving installation instructions for the stack as well as a brief overview of MongoDB and a database structure for use in the examples. The rest of the chapters build incrementally on using Pentaho's tools to build analysis, run data transformations and augmentations, and reports from this data. It also delves into some of the deeper integrations such as query Mongo using the aggregation pipeline commands etc. Overall I think that this is a good book to buy if you use MongoDB and you want to pull data for analysis or ETL type jobs.
