Good start if you hope to learn more about big data. Full of interesting examples

Dec 31, 2013

Let me begin by saying that I teach statistics in a predictive analytics grad program at a major university, in other words, in a program that specializes in teaching professionals to crunch "Big Data." With that background, and just plain old common sense, I think this is the worst possible introduction to the subject that could ever have been published. This book is shallow and disorganized and says almost nothing about the main topic, "data," which, by the way, is used in the plural by professional data scientists, the singular being "datum." Anyone with any relevant background whatsoever knows this. What a drag. I am so disappointed that people could actually be introduced to the topic with this book. Alas.

Hopefully this Big Data crunching will tell us who owns JPMorgan Chase, GE, ExxonMobil, AT&T, and explain to us what Monsanto GMOs, Narus, the Trovicor Monitoring Center, and various other destructive forces, are about? Just being facetious, this is a clownish book.
