Thanks Dr. G! Looking forward to the new book and starting this program!

I have pre-ordered the book from Amazon, thanks.

Thanks a lot. I have just bought the book and reading it. In many ways, the book is very well explanatory to understand the data science and big data. 

I just bought this book for my up-and-coming Manager of Advanced Analytics.  As we build a Data Science program, it's exciting to have this as a desk reference.
