The two core team developers Pieter Noordhuis and Salvatore Sanfilippo are writing the book "Redis: the Definitive Guide" for O'Reilly Media that will be available in a few months.
The following is a list of books covering Redis that are already published:
- The Little Redis Book by Karl Seguin is a great free and coincise book that will get you started with Redis.
- Redis in Action by Josiah L. Carlson (early access edition).
- Redis Cookbook (O'Reilly Media, 2011)
The following books have Redis related content but are not specifically about Redis:
- Seven databases in seven weeks (Note: Redis chapter still coming soon).
- Mining the Social Web (O'Reilly Media, 2011)
- Professional NoSQL (Wrox, 2011)
All the work Salvatore Sanfilippo and Pieter Noordhuis do in order to develop Redis is sponsored by VMware. In the past Redis accepted donations from other companies that are listed in the Sponsors page.
