First of all, this book is really well-written. The authors explained recommendation technology concepts in an easy-to-follow way. At the same time, they didn't miss the most up-to-date research topics.
Second, all the writers are world's leading researchers of recommendations.
Therefore, they are good to lead readers to more focal points. I like the bibliographic notes at the end of each chapter.
Lastly, by introducing toy examples in every chapter, readers are able to easily comprehend each technology. Actually, this part is my favorite. I think this book is between a reference book of recommendation-related rationales and practical programming books like Manning series or O'Reilly's.
I already made my mind to choose this book as a textbook of my course in the next semester.
I'm saying that because I had other books, for example:
Those ones are good but didn't fulfill my desires.
Besides, it is easy to read and understand the concepts, I felt it gave me a good understand of the recomender system universe. I agree that this is the first step. But this first step is so dense that the second step seems so far away.
so I bought this book as the golden standard.
It is well written and quite interesting,
but for my taste it is too
theoretical and with too much focus
on e-commerce-recommenders and even customer-decision-making.
The book could have more information for that price.
