    Oxford professor and author Viktor Mayer-Schönberger joins Economist data editor and commentator Kenneth Cukier to deliver insight into the hottest trend in technology. "Big data" makes it possible to instantly analyze and draw conclusions from vast stores of information, enabling revolutionary breakthroughs in business, health, politics, and education. But big data also raises troubling social and privacy concerns sure to be a major talking point in the years ahead.

    Michael says: "Pretty light stuff on Big Data"

    Story
    Would you listen to Big Data again? Why?

    Yes. The book conveys the concept of BigData using some really interesting anecdotes.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Easy to understand structure and devoid of any fancy/confusing jargons.


    What does Jonathan Hogan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Easy to understand voice however not monotonic at the same time.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Some of the BigData stories were truly surprising including the Google's H1N1 Flu story.


    Any additional comments?

    Really enjoyed listening to this book. I am planning to re-listen really soon and read the paper copy as well.
