I liked it, that the book is short: it touches on every part of the api, giving you a good overview of mongoid: This is often very helpful, when you already know that things like the Paranoia-plugin exist and what their purpose is – when it comes to actually using is, you can still find the specifics online, now that you know what you are looking for - Stefan Frank
