Big data is changing the way businesses - and even governments - are operated and managed. Think Bigger is an essential resource for anyone who wants to ensure that their company isn't left in the dust.

This book IS NOT for people already in the data world looking for insights about Big Data trend... most of the content is known facts about what a data driven company and strategy are.
I'm just not the target audience. Should have said it in the description
"Good general info about the topic and trend."
A big picture of the field. Not a go to book on "how", but did list the top databases in the market.
"Big Data usage and definition"
Everything what is digital is data.
For such technical book it was very nice.
List of usage examples is very descriptive and contains lots of examples.
