"MongoDB and Python - incomplete" - by Anonymous on 12-NOV-2013

Where's the rest?  it stops after 4 chapters, no index, no fleshed-out examples after the first chapter or two - there's no meat to this.  Unusually disappointing for an O'Reilly title.

"A decent introduction" - by Dave S on 02-OCT-2012

A fairly basic book, covering the basics of getting Python working with MongoDB, some simple queries and patterns, and integration with 3 frameworks.

Good if you're starting off with Python or Mongo, but you can read the whole thing in an hour so expect to have to get another book quickly.
