"Going beyond its responsibility as a reference book, the heavily-updated second edition also provides all-new, detailed tutorials with step-by-step instructions to drive established data mining software tools across real world applications. This way, newcomers start their engines immediately and experience hands-on success.
"What's more, this edition drills down on hot topics across seven new chapters, including deep learning and how to avert "b---s---" results. 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., founder of Predictive Analytics World and author of "Predictive Analytics: The Power to Predict Who Will Click, Buy, Lie, or Die"
"Great introduction to the real-world process of data mining. The overviews, practical advice, tutorials, and extra CD material make this book an invaluable resource for both new and experienced data miners." --Karl Rexer, PhD (President and Founder of Rexer Analytics, Boston, Massachusetts)
