Books in Print

Here are the books that are currently in print -in order of publishing-, along with the Hadoop version they were written against. One problem anyone writing a book will encounter is that Hadoop is a very fast-moving target, and that things can change fast. Usually this is for the better, when a book says "Hadoop can't" they really mean "the version of Hadoop we worked with couldn't", and that the situation may have improved since then. If you have any query about Hadoop, don't be afraid to ask on the relevant user mailing lists.
