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.

So Knowledgeable

I have read several books on data mining and information processing, but this was the first very good overview of the process and it was written in clear, easy to understand language. It talks more about the process than the technology but ties the two together to show how a business solution would be put together.

Simply The Best

This book helps answer what the data science is about. It teaches you what kind of task and analysis you would do if you worked as a data scientist. The author emphasizes that it is rather "conceptual" than "mathematical", so it is greatly helpful to those without much math and/or statistics background. If you are into learning professional skill or knowledge, it may not be the book but it is still a good book to start if you need a general idea.

Exceptional

A well structured and well-written introduction to this important subject. Clear examples are used and the fundàmentals reinforced in many places. Of special interest is the example proposal and evaluation in the appendix. A warning, this will really only make sense by listening to the 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.

One of my best ACX listening 2019

The most helpful book I've found so far at describing the theory of Data Science. If you are looking to get into data science and don't want just to start filling away with Machine Learning, then this is a great beginner book that will teach you the language and the concepts that surround data science.

Good subject matter and well-written.

The only problem I have is that without a full understanding of a statistical concept of differential privacy, it is difficult to understand its application to any algorithm, otherwise a great effort by the author.

Effectiveness Through Simplicity

I just finished this book. I am attempting to get into Data Science for Beginners. I guess even practicing machine learning. For me, it would have been better if the examples were more focused Programming Code.
