Anyway, it's a hopeless read. Frequently the authors repeat themselves, and often it's very obvious things. For instance, how many ways can you mention the importance of figuring out who's "likeing" or "sharing" your posts on social media, and the business potential in that?
They sell it as a non-technical introduction to business analytics, but I'd say that's an understatement.
