I would disagree about googling for the recipes in this cookbook, it's something anyone could say about any technical resource. I found this book to be extremely well written and organized. The recipe on parsing data for near real time searches was well worth the cost of the book. If you aren't comfortable with apache or linux you wouldn't be looking into this book, but don't let that stop you from getting to know Solr because the Author walks you through each project.
The real life scenarios are also priceless and all very well written, I am not an extensive user of Solr but these recipes are most common and now I have a goto source. The cloud setup was great and with more and more going into cloud computing it was great to see this made it into the book. Great book at a good price worthy of a cookbook title!
