Hooked: How to Build Habit-Forming Products by Nir Eyal
I follow Nir's blog already, and was waiting for this book to be published to get it. Like you, you might be aware of the Hooked Model discussed in the book from his blog posts, yet the book explains the stuff mentioned in the blog posts in more details. Also the example and case studies given in the book puts you in the shoes of those entrepreneurs and how they keep the users of their products hooked. I recommend this book if you are an entrepreneur or just into behavioral psychology.

I blogged about the book here too. https://medium.com/@gr33ndata/hooked-how-to-build-habit-forming-products-9458f0ef38e6
Inverting The Pyramid: The History Of Football Tac&hellip by Jonathan Wilson
4.0 out of 5 stars Great book, 25 April 2014
It is very exciting and informative book. Never knew that much information about the history of football and its tactics before. Have been recommending the book to almost everybody interested in football that I know.
Sentiment Analysis and Opinion Mining by Bing Liu
The main problem with this book is its shallowness. The author describes interesting topics in each chapter, but he only gives you a brief introduction and points you to the research papers written in those topics, and that's it. I do take notes of the research papers I want to read in Evernote to read them later, and this book is not any better that my Evernotesque bookmarks. Well, may be it just saved me from writing down the papers names myself, and wrote them for me instead, yet, I still have to read the papers themselves to understand what he is talking about how the Sentiment Analysis and Opinion Mining problems are really solved.
