Publisher's Summary

Three amazing books in one about analyzing and mining data!

Audiobook 1: Learn more about how to analyze data now! This elaborate guide will take you on a journey to multiple aspects of this skill. There is a trick, a science, to doing it the right way, and some of the most important secrets will be revealed in the chapters ahead of you. You'll learn, among others:

  • What the big deal with big data is and what to do with them
  • Fundamentals, risks, and strategies to analyze data
  • Social network data analysis
  • Applications to health care, business, and industrial data
  • Tips on analyzing decision trees, regression, and sentiment
  • The most important basics each analytical geek wants to know before they take these practices to the next level

Audiobook 2: Dive into the complicated matter of analyzing and mining for data, correctly. Forget about intuition or assumptions. Data are facts you can rely on, if you draw the right conclusions. Drawing those conclusions requires certain skills and a background in knowledge that leads to the proper steps. This guide will help you along the way by addressing topics such as:

  • The what and why of data mining, and the different applications to business-related topics
  • Attributes, classifications, datasets, and types of learning you need to understand to fully be aware of what you are dealing with

Best data mining book in business context

This is by far the best Data Mining book that has a business focus. There are 100 data mining books that will tell you how, for example, neural network works. But you will still be blank where and how to apply this.
In short, this is a book that tells you when to use data mining, how to use data mining and how to evaluate the models in a business context. It offers many real business examples. If you are truly interested in data mining solutions for business, this is the book to read.

Great book for providing a high level summary

Great book for providing a high level summary of data science techniques to people that may not care about the mathematical details. I tend to recommend this to people more worried about building up a working knowledge of classic problems and approaches in data science rather than for those wanting to look at page after page of detailed math related to probability distributions. The authors took up the challenge of writing a timeless book in a field undergoing fast technological growth. If you want to manage successful teams in data science and data-analytic thinking this book is a must. I highly recommend it!

I learned a lot

This is not a fluffy book. It helped me understand what is possible in data science. It is a good compliment to technical books on or whatever for doing data science. This book is used in Northwestern University's course on machine learning. We've got textbooks that provide the technical definitions on data mining techniques, but if you want good knowledge without the itty bitty details, this is a great book. I use this book for the explanation of concepts in a way someone with a business background (vs a comp-sci backgorund) can understand.

Better understanding of &quot;Data Science&quot;

This is by far the most accessible data science book out there. If you have any interaction with data scientists/statisticians as part of work, this book is a way to understand the burgeoning field better.

It does not go in depth into mathematics or computer science concepts, rather it grounds the material into a digestible format that anyone can understand.

This book addresses the topic of Big Data in a practical, understandable manner. Some books are too technical or the authors seem to be learning as they go. These guys know what they are talking about well enough to really be able to explain it.

Data backed with research.

The narration went on smoothly and I just repeat listening to it when I want to clarify a certain topic. I specifically focus on the techniques for data analytics which there were seven of them enumerated by the narrator, their advantages and tips for creating such analysis. Overall, listening to this audio was a good one. It makes the listening experience good.

Useful book

This is such a wide topic but it was narrowed down bit by bit in a detailed fashion to make the listeners understand what the author wants to say or explain. In totality, it was a wise buy cause it was less costly learning. Analytics is a process of systematic analysis of data or statistics to come up with a result based on what was discovered on the data analysis process. I learned the basics of data analytics, terminologies, big data and its benefits and so on.
