    "Downright awesome"

    This book is downright awesome. I have read this book twice and I can vouch for every single page of this book to be invaluable. If you are not a statistician but would like to grasp the key fundamentals of data science, look no further. Grab this book and read cover to cover.

    "Bridges the gap between science and business"

    This is the best book for understanding data science. It is written for a college-educated non-mathematician who wants to understand the potential of big data for providing business insights. It includes just enough technical detail so that a SAS or R programmer gets a good enough background to delve into the recommended reference and technical articles that the book suggests. This is such an interesting book. Never gets boring like the normal technical book stuff...

    "Advanced 2 in 1"

    This book essentially systematizes data analysis methodologies, and is simply the best resource I've ever seen to accomplish that purpose. I'm working to see if we can get this book for all the data analysts on our staff, so they can have it as a resource. Extremely useful to get your feet wet and learn about the principles of data science. Clearly written and a book I'll likely reference again when I need a refresher.

    "Amazing introductory book"

    Very well organized, easy to follow and full of real life examples. I truly recommend this ebook to everyone who's learning how to deal with a big data and big data analytics projects.
    It's a good, but hard read. I'd like to think of myself as above average when it comes to stats and math, but I had to reread several chapters to ensure I had the concept down. More of a book around machine learning. Still a good read, just take your time with it.

    "Worth listening."

    Aside from the basics of data analytics, I also learned about its terminologies, its benefits, and types of analysis. Analyzing data helps us identify the market trend and will help us decide either to expand the business, to make changes or not with less risks on our part. This is the reason why I give this book a good feedback aside from the fact that narration was good, the book content itself was obviously well researched or practiced by the author himself.

    Useful book for those who wants to level up their business.

    "That was great audio."

    In today's business world, the companies that are getting ahead are using lots of analytics to make the right decisions.This is exactly true as the book suggests. The narration was impressive-not very fast but not too slow, too highlighting the important points to remember.
    Analytics often involves studying past historical data to research potential trends, to analyze the effects of certain decisions or events, or to evaluate the performance of a given tool or scenario. The goal of analytics is to improve the business by gaining knowledge which can be used to make improvements or changes.

    "It is reliable tool for success."

    I am convinced with the narrator's way of explaining what data analytics is all about, its benefits to the business, how we can create them, and make use of the past data to guide the people in making a sound decisions or changes that we wish to apply. The discussion was in detailed form, not slow paced nor fast. It's right for me. It gives me more ideas on how I could run my small business using what numbers tell.

    "This can be a good guide for everyone."

    In this book, it was clearly narrated, sharing the basis of data analytics, its techniques, genetic algorithms among others. It was explained in detailed way. I like listening to it especially when I am alone trying to figure out what should be my next step in running my small business. This guides the listeners to use data analytics especially in implementing new ideas in the company or making some changes in daily operation.

    "Data analytics bundle"

    Hearing the word data analytics means good to me. It sounds very thorough of data for the past period and analyzed them well to reinforce or to make change either in operation or process which gauge towards greater profitability. This is what I like about the book. So far, the way it was discussed was detailed, highlighting the most important content such as the benefits of big data, techniques for data analytics, association rule mining and so on.
