‘This is the book we’ve been missing: big data explained without the complexity.’
-- MARC SALOMON, DEAN, UNIVERSITY OF AMSTERDAM BUSINESS SCHOOL
This is fantastic. I want to make it required reading for so many people that I work with and have worked with in the past. I really like how it goes deep on some areas that many other books do a lot of hand-waving around, but it still keeps it digestible for readers who aren’t involved in this stuff on a day-to-day basis.
