5.0 out of 5 stars
Very good reading material, 5 Sept. 2013
First I was a bit surprised by the size of the book (rather small) but than I was even more surprised when I got hooked to it and read it within a day...
A good collection of different views on big data with some good examples. Some of them I knew before - but would not have brought them into the Big Data context. This book is less about technology as such, but about how technology has an impact on the social environment. Some computer science background is useful, but not required.
