Hi to the MongoDB in Action Team,

I am currently working with CouchDB to store Twitter data and run some Map Reduce to analyse the types scenarios I can identify in respect to the data I harvest. I have been reading in a lot of places that MongoDB is a better DB tool to use for such a purpose and was curious as to what sort of functionalities does MongoDB provide which might make it more beneficial to use over CouchDB ? Also, what abut its integration with Python, as I'm currently Harvesting tweets using a Python script and am pushing the JSON returned from the Twitter API to CouchDB. Also, does your book focus on MongoDB, like its features and applications only or does it also provide examples of integration with other programming languages to perform various sorts of analysis in general ?

Looking forward to your reply.
