Totally recommended. If you want to learn Hadoop, buy a Hadoop book - or an R book if you want to go deeper in that topic. But if you want to understand the current big data universe, how the tools interrelate between each other, and go from data generation to storage to analysis to visualization - this is the book.
So, if you keep hearing about things like Hadoop, noSQL, Python, SciPy, Pandas, R and you just want to learn "what is the big deal" or "why bother" learning yet another tool, this is the perfect book.
So, if you want a very quick overview of what data science is, this is an easy read and provides you just that, but if you want anything deeper out of it, I think this book is somewhat disappointing.
