This book appears to be a basic discussion on the topic and not a detailed look into modern processes and techniques of setting up systems that allow an organization to be data driven. Maybe this is what the author intended ("basic discussion") but I expected more.

I cant say that I was impressed so I can only give a rating of 3.

In this relatively new field of data science it's difficult to even define what is included let alone define the teams that create the results. This is a great book that clarifies both the definition of data science and the kind of teams do the work. This is a must read for people seriously in this field.

Good read. Author speaking a lot from experience. Would love to see more about the practical 'how'. Whilst there are lots of references to this, I was hoping for more day-to-day how.

A must have for anyone interested in growing a business. With the current direction of the market, getting acquainted with the process of managing data is a priority. And you can't beat free.

Dr. DJ Patil (or anyone interested in hiring a data scientist), I am an experimental physicist trying to break into the field. I am bright, very creative, extremely competitive, and the hardest working person you will ever meet.

This is mine:

Especially for people involved in hiring analytic professionals. If you are interested in learning about data science and want to understand modern, innovative, state-of-the-art techniques and apply these techniques, I recommend that you download the "Data Science ebook by Analyticbridge". It's also a free book.

Really great resource for building teams/hiring. Given that the title "data scientist" is so new, hiring for the position generally has a lot of unknowns, but DJ Patil is definitely one of the few authority figures in the field with a lot of great first-hand experience to share. That, together with the fact that the book is such a quick read, makes it essential for anyone building, or thinking about building, a data driven company.

With background in all the top tier users of analytics (LinkedIn, Facebook, Google) this author gives you a good overview of the fast-emerging need for data scientist, differentiates them from analysts, and helps put some context around this nascent business opportunity. If you are looking at advanced analytics and don't know about data science, it is a worthy tutorial.

As a business person who sees opportunity in big data, this was a valuable starting point and I appreciated the author's insights from industry leaders like LinkedIn.
