Thanks a lot. I'm eagerly waiting for this book:)

As one of the authors, it will introduce pieces of Mahout (namely a  
section on clustering and one on naive bayes, if and when I can get  
some time from my job to finish it), but it will not be "Mahout in  
Action", if that is what you are looking for, which, as Lukas said  
will hopefully happen in the future (although I don't think I am  
volunteering for it).  For the record, it will cover things like Solr,  
OpenNLP, Carrot^2 and other clustering techniques, maybe some stuff on  
graph ranking, and a chapter or two to tie them together, but these  
last two pieces are still TBD.  The basic gist is there are all of  
these pretty good open source tools for going beyond pure search.
