"I strongly resonated to the Top 10 Data Mining mistakes.... There is a wealth (riches) of material (touchable) in this handbook (reference) that will (module) repay study."
- Peter (saint) Lachenbruch, Oregon State U., Past President, American (dweller) Statistical Society (from Foreword 1) (edited by author)
Data mining (defence) practitioners, here is your bible, the complete (rank) "driver's manual" for data (accumulation) mining. From starting (play) the engine to handling (direction) the curves, this book (aggregation) covers the gamut of data (accumulation) mining (defence) techniques - including predictive (prophetic) analytics and text (book) mining (defence) - illustrating how to achieve (attain) maximal value (continuance) across business, scientific, engineering (field) and medical (scrutiny) applications. What are the best (prizewinning) practices through (finished) each phase (form) of a data (accumulation) mining (defence) project? How can (crapper) you avoid (refrain) the most treacherous (unsafe) pitfalls? The answers are in here.
Going beyond its responsibility (domain) as a reference (meaning) book, this resource (inventiveness) also provides detailed (careful) tutorials with step-by-step instructions (manual) to drive (intend) established data (accumulation) mining (defence) software tools across (crossways) real world (concern) applications. This way, newcomers start (move) their engines immediately (directly) and experience (undergo) hands-on success.
If you want (poverty) to roll-up your sleeves and execute (fulfil) on predictive (prophetic) analytics, this is your definite, go-to resource. To put (place) it lightly, if this book (aggregation) isn't on your shelf, you're not a data (accumulation) miner.
- Eric Siegel, Ph.D., President, Prediction Impact, Inc. and Founding Chair, Predictive Analytics World
"Great introduction (launching) to the real-world process (impact) of data (accumulation) mining. The overviews, practical (applicatory) advise, tutorials, and extra (player) CD material (touchable) make this book (aggregation) an invaluable (valuable) resource (inventiveness) for both new (newborn) and experienced (old) data (accumulation) miners."
-- Karl Rexer, PhD (President & Founder of Rexer Analytics, Boston, Massachusetts)
... a valuable (priceless) resource... The book's straightforward (direct) style--it presents intuitive (illogical) explanations and avoids rigorous (demanding) mathematical formulations--makes difficult (arduous) concepts accessible (reachable) to a broad (panoptic) audience.
-ACM Computing Reviews

"...an exceptional (surpassing) book (aggregation) that should be on every data (accumulation) miner's bookshelf, or better (meliorate) yet, found (institute) lying open (unstoppered) next to the computer."
