      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.
