"By reading through this title, I now better understand how I can use Pig and Hive for the straight forward analytics and MapReduce native for my more specialized needs – or in other words – use the right tool for the job."
-- Jason C Armstrong, Jason Armstrong blog, Manager of Software Development

"Although the MapReduce programming model is deceptively simple, using it to solve real problems at scale effectively requires a different way of thinking. MapReduce Design Patterns clearly delivers the insight previously gained only after years of experience."
-- Tom Wheeler, Curriculum Developer, Cloudera, Inc.

"A clear exposition of MapReduce programs for common data processing patterns--this book is indispensable for anyone using Hadoop."
-- Tom White, Author of Hadoop: The Definitive Guide

"Good choice if you need to implement something and don't have enough of knowledge."
-- Andriy Andrunevchyn, http://jug-lviv.blogspot.com, Lead of JUG (Java User Group) of Lviv

"It's easy to read with good template format. All code examples in book are written for Hadoop. You will learn from many examples, many ideas. Each example will show readers how this problem would be solved and more idea about performance analysis. I believe it's a good idea to use this book as reference. Readers can reproduce code in book with their work." Full Review >
