"You won't get started" - by Akir Ikasu on 23-APR-2014

I know this book is called "Getting Started", but you certainly won't be launching any kind of couchdb-backed application with the information in this book. While it does give you the rudimentary knowledge about how couchdb works and how it differs from a more traditional database (in a way that is very easy to understand, I might add), it doesn't go much further than the basics. Yes, couchdb is simple, but even I know better than to make it public without some kind of security in place (a topic almost completely brushed over in this book!)
