Chapter 1, Replication: In this chapter, you will see how to set up MySQL replication, useful for load balancing, online backups, and fail-over scenarios. Advanced replication scenarios using the blackhole engine and streaming slave deployment are discussed beyond the basic topics.

Fulltext indexing, clustered and non-clustered indexes are compared and presented with their respective strengths and typical use cases.
