This book deals with lots of features of NoSQLs such as architectures, schema, how to run / input / output, the short histories, specifications and so on.
I know the examples and the explanations for the features are somewhat simple but I think this book is good for referencing or comparing NoSQLs.
Good book, anyway.
But it still very explanatory book
