This was the long awaited 3rd edition from Pete, Baron, and Vadim, they did a good job as usual.  Lots of detail and tid bits of information that is really hard to dig up anywhere else.  No mention of Tokutek however and not a lot on the new galera cluster which would have been nice.  Thorough review of master-master replication which is a decent reference.
