Hello Vincent Granville:
I finally got your Developing Analytic Talent. While I was waiting I started looking at the 27 Free Data Mining Books and the materials mentioned in the How to Become a Data Scientist for Free. A lot of material to cover. Luckily, due to health limitations I cannot do much any way so this will definitely keep me busy. Also, I may be able to use these techniques for Compliance look ups at work, which will keep me employed.
Good luck Patrick :-) There are plenty of links on this site to documents and people who can help you.
