5.0 out of 5 stars Long Overdue, July 12, 2009
Rarely do authors succeed in writing THE comprehensive guide to anything, particularly when the subject matter is as complex, multifaceted and rapidly changing as the field of data mining. The Handbook of Statistical Analysis & Data Mining Applications far exceeds that worthy goal. The text is well organized, thoughtfully written and intuitive. The authors' comfortable style and examples from their own experience make even the most opaque concepts understandable and accessible. By following the CRISP-DM model and incorporating screen shots from the leading data mining platforms, the authors have written an invaluable text that incorporates both industry best practices and best-in-breed technology. Moreover, the math and science behind the concepts and methods are accurate and well-referenced; something missing in the junk science that so frequently passes for "advanced analytics." In successfully integrating these features, the Handbook excels as both a comprehensive teaching text and easy reference that will be used frequently by students and professionals alike. The Handbook of Statistical Analysis & Data Mining Applications is long overdue and certain to become THE comprehensive guide and a classic in our field.
