Editorial Reviews

"The book is quite brief. It contains a lot of rather technical information concentrated around particular topics. . I highly recommend this book to students, professionals, experts, and others interested in the potential of recommendations taking place within social networks." (P. Navrat, Computing Reviews,, June, 2016)
