Editorial Reviews

"Great introduction to the real-world process of data mining. The overviews, practical advise, tutorials, and extra CD material make this book an invaluable resource for both new and experienced data miners.?- Karl Rexer, PhD (President & Founder of Rexer Analytics, Boston, Massachusetts)If you want to roll-up your sleeves and execute on predictive analytics, this is your definite, go-to resource. To put it lightly, if this book isn't on your shelf, you're not a data miner.- Eric Siegel, Ph.D., President, Prediction Impact, Inc. and Founding Chair, Predictive Analytics World
