The book is now (2009) outdated to the point of being useless. But it was a disappointed even before, there's precious little of useful information on how to use Lucene beyond the freely available chapters (that are, to be fair, quite useful, Lucene's API documentation being what it is). The 2nd edition coming out this year may be better. ( )
