Someone once told me you can tell how healthy a software project
is by the number of new books each year. For
the past few years the MySQL community has been blessed with one
or two books each year. Part of that was the major shift with
MySQL 8 changes but part of it was that the vast majority of the
changes were fairly minor and did not need detailed explanations.
But this year we have been blessed with four new
books. Four very good books on new facets of MySQL.
Introducing the MySQL 8 Document Store is the latest book from Dr. Charles Bell on MySQL. If you have read any other of Dr. Chuck's book you know they are well written with lots of examples. This is more than a simple introduction with many intermediate and advanced concepts covered in detail.
