The book covers all aspects of Big Data Analytics in a nutshell. The content of the book is definitely informative about data analytics. I really like the way the progression goes with each chapter. This book discusses everything I needed to know when it comes to analyzing data, transforming, inspecting, cleaning and even creating models out of that data. Each topic can be expanded into a much more deep communication. I think it's a good starting point if you're a new-comer to data analysis

RV living is growing in popularity as more people hit the road to travel in a different kind of way - by bringing their mobile homes with them everywhere that they go. Sure, you could buy a ticket and hop on a plane to your next destination, but what's the fun in that? Touring on the road, making little stops along the way that are off the beaten track sometimes, and exploring places you ordinarily would have missed, that's the real adventure that brings so much allure to life on the road living in an RV.

Great little book for beginners! I've thought about this lifestyle since my sister, cousin, and I were 8 years old and would pick out RVs that we'd live in and travel the country! There were issues in here that I had never even thought of (staying sane) and I think the author has done an excellent job of introducing the lifestyle to novice

This book is one of a very few that offer a clear and balanced introduction to what crytocurrencies are, how they originated, and what the future might hold. This is not a book about bitcoin or the currency exchange markets in cryto, it is a book about the collection of technologies that make up what we now call "the blockchain" and how and why value can be stored and transferred securely and publicly on these chains.

In this book, we will provide you with everything you need to know about Cognitive Behavioral Therapy as well as the reasons why it's being considered one of the most effective treatments for certain emotional disorders. We'll go through the basics and essentials that beginners have to understand before they start their treatments, as well as the different benefits one can gain from it. Included are the different issues it is known to effectively treat, and the philosophy behind it. Aside from this, we also provide you with introductions into the different techniques used in CBT. Many of these techniques are meant to tackle very specific issues, and that is one of the great things about CBT. It provides very focused treatments, and sets specific goals for the therapist and their client to achieve. We delve into the connection between our thoughts, feelings, and behavior - how all three affect each other and how making small changes can result in significant positive results in our lives.
