muddled

I felt like this was all over the place both in terms of content and level of detail / granularity for the sections. Some sections were really detailed while others were extremely sparse and some sounded like they had just been lifted off a Google search and weren't really tied in.

The format of the book fails.

Data science is a highly visual discipline that seems in stark contrast to the very essence of the audiobook format. Indeed this audiobook is quite useless without a hard copy at hand, sadly.

Its Good

This book is for people to gain an understanding of what data science truly is and how it can help with business decisions. The authors do a great job of keeping the concepts applicable to actual business events.

Excellent

This book is an excellent introduction to data science for shaping how one would think about information. I went over many different methodologies and explained in such a way that was concise and relatively easy to follow.

Essential

This book is ideal for anyone looking to understand data science, and especially those who might interact with data scientists at work. Roughly half the book deals with the essential data mining algorithms. The focus is on understanding what the algorithms do, not the details of how they do it, so implementation details are omitted.

I Liked It

This book will not make you an expert but at least you will know what the experts are talking about. It is written with just enough math for the non-PhD manager to understand.

Data Science

An excellent discussion of data science methods without an excessive focus on mathematical elements. These are included at a level that can be understood for the skilled marketer who has a background but does not wish to go deep into the math. I recommend it.

This is more like an audible Wikipedia page

I actually think this was written by a machine. It’s just a collection of lists, brands, etc and very brief expansion on some of them. It’s so dull and has added nothing to my understanding of the material.

all over the place

Awful. A narrator who sent me to sleep, content which is not cohesive or even helpful. It flips from talking about univariate linear regression (I think, if we're over the age of 10, we know what this is) to how to cross validate over the course of two consecutive sentences. Full of empty platitudes. Listens more like a college students' flow-of-thought diary than a pro audiobook. Maybe it's better in book form but audio does not suit this book.

Skip it

This book is too deep for the complete novice and does not have any depth for the armchair data scientist. Though I did not like the book, I went back to listen and try to think who I thought the correct audience is. I don’t think there is one.

A straightforward book.

You will not waste your time with understanding the fundamental mathematics and instead leverages the use of publicly available Python libraries. The math of Machine Learning can easily be intimidating, and I commend the authors from shying away from it.
