Who this book is written for

Developers who are working with Apache Solr and would like to know how to combat common problems will find this book of great use. Knowledge of Apache Lucene would be a bonus but is not required.

This book has great recipes for doing common configurations and tasks in SOLR. What it does not do is tie them all together in a super-coherent narrative of how to build your SOLR deployment. It would be nice to get a bit more guidance on a holistic deployment process from "here's what I want to do" to "here's how to do it". That said, it will probably continue to provide useful tidbits for months as we deploy and refine our SOLR server configurations.

One note on the Kindle edition: code snippets can be a little bit difficult to distinguish from the text; there's no spacing or boxing around the code snippets.
Mall
Not so hot if you are using Solr 3.1+. Problem is that Solr undergoes significant changes from one release to another. Much if what is in this text will still work, but I think you are better off with actual Apache docs if you want to use features from a version > 3.1.
Ubranzac
A lot of redundancy, i.e "the address can be different if you are using multiple cores"
A lot of stuff without explanation, i.e. "I tend to set this parameter to a quarter", but why? Or showing picture and listing what it shows :)

Good as introduction to solr, so I should know what to expect from solr, but search for specific solution somewhere else.

Best Solr manual in print that I have come across. It is good for both beginner and expert level.

Another great reference is the Solr Reference PDF Manual from Lucid Works. Find it here:

Now, to give a bit of context: I help folks implementing and customizing Solr professionally, so I know a fair bit of how Solr works, and am also quite familiar with the code internals. I was, therefore, pleasantly surprised when leafing through the table of contents, that there were at least a couple entries which had me wondering: Now how would I do that?

Here's the high-level TOC:

Chapter 1: Apache Solr Configuration
Chapter 2: Indexing your Data
Chapter 3: Analyzing your Text Data
Chapter 4: Solr Administration
Chapter 5: Querying Solr
Chapter 6: Using Faceting Mechanism
Chapter 7: Improving Solr Performance
Chapter 8: Creating Applications that use Solr and Developing your Own Solr Modules
Chapter 9: Using Additional Solr Functionalities
Chapter 10: Dealing with Problems

And here's a list of the recipes in Chapter 5, to give you a feel of the recipes:

Chapter 5: Querying Solr
Introduction
Asking for a particular field value
Sorting results by a field value
Choosing a different query parser
How to search for a phrase, not a single word
Boosting phrases over words
Positioning some documents over others on a query
Positioning documents with words closer to each other first
Sorting results by a distance from a point
Getting documents with only a partial match
Affecting scoring with function
Nesting queries

Now, first of all, this book is like one of those cookbook-type books with lots of snippets of how to do stuff in Solr. If you know next to nothing about Solr, this book is not for you. As the PacktPub site says:

This book is part of Packt's Cookbook series... The recipes deal with common problems of working with Solr by using easy-to-understand, real-life examples. The book is not in any way a complete Apache Solr reference...

If, however, you're just past beginner level and wanting to dig a little deeper into Solr and find the FAQs, tutorials, Solr Wiki etc too confusing/verbose/unorganized, then I think Apache Solr 3.1 Cookbook is probably exactly what you need.

The examples are concise, stand-alone, and can be readily implemented in 5 minutes or less. They're a non-threatening way to get past the beginner level, and also offer a glimpse at some of Solr's more advanced functionality.

Oddly enough, the reviews on the web (amazon.com, goodreads and google books) all rate this book mediocrely, with an average of 3+ stars. In my opinion, this book easily deserves at least 4, if not 4.5 stars, assuming you're not a complete Solr n00b.

OK, I admit the writing is a little repetitive at times (the author's Polish), and some of the recipes are really, really basic, but nonetheless, for a cookbook-style guide aimed at the beginner-intermediate crowd, I think it's great!
