Editorial Reviews

Review

"Now, for the first time, there is an outstanding text on data mining which covers the science as well as the process in a comprehensive manner and with great lucidity." --Laks Lakshmanan, Concordia University, on the 1st ed:

The second edition of Han and Kamber Data Mining: Concepts and Techniques updates and improves the already comprehensive coverage of the first edition and adds coverage of new and important topics, such as mining stream data, mining social networks, and mining spatial, multi-media and other complex data. This book will be an excellent textbook for courses on Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery.Gregory Piatetsky-Shapiro, President, KDnuggets

The second edition is the most complete and up-to-date presentation on this topic. Compared to the already comprehensive and thorough coverage of the first edition it adds the state-of-the-art research results in new topics such as mining stream, time-series and sequence data as well as mining spatial, multimedia, text and web data. This book is a "must have" for all instructors, researchers, developers and users in the area of data mining and knowledge discovery. -Hans-Peter Kriegel, University of Munich, Germany

Book Description

Highly anticipated second edition of the definitive reference on data mining by the top authority.

Format: Hardcover
This is a great textbook for an undergraduate or layperson to the information sciences, but specialists may find it lacking depth. It is very good at identifying practices and principles that would guide a high-level planner toward a sound research program. That said, this book exhaustively covers the breadth of the modern field at the expense of formulas, algorithms, and source code that would have been valuable to an engineer or scientist with plans to implement.

* Buy this book if you require a high-level understanding of the concepts and techniques used in the field.

* Don't buy this book if you are planning to specialize in data mining, or if you have plans to implement yourself.

I have read the first edition of this book years before. This second edition has significant improvements. Core topic (classification, clustering, association rules) is very detailed and much easier to read. The author also add much material about advanced topics such as graph mining, multimedia mining, stream and time series mining, etc. Although these advanced topics are not as well writen as core topics, at least you will get idea about what's going on in these areas.

Format: Hardcover
Dr. Han is a leader in Data Mining; but unfortunately this book does not speak for that. The explanation is poor, the language is weak and thus, the book is not at all a good read. The book by Pang-Ning Tan and Kumar is much better.

The only good thing is that the second edition has a comprehensive coverage and contains many recent topics (streaming, social network, etc.) which is not available in other textbooks.

If you have a professor that assigns this book for your class, run the other way. This book is extremely frustrating. It only explains in detail the easier concepts with examples,(which are incoherent), and neglects explanation and examples on all the advanced topics. It is full of formula that is incomplete, along with confusing notation.
