Thank you for a brilliantly written audio book.

Thank you for a brilliantly written audio book that allows the listener to navigate the field of data science and for lifting up the mystery cover for many potential data analysts who don't go into the field because they think it is voodoo.

This audio book addresses the topic of Big Data.

This audio book addresses the topic of Big Data in a practical, understandable manner. Some audio 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.

Great audio book!

Great audio 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.

Gives you the details!

Gives you the details, insights, underlying principles, and a glimpse but not the full set of math that would be necessary to actually be a practitioner.
