I'm still mid-read, and finding this one painful. So far it appears to be little more than a massively biased IBM sales pitch. I don't recall reading half the authors worked in the marketing team, which in retrospect strikes me as odd.
Based on the content so far, and constant barrage of references to how "great" the authors (who work for IBM) believe IBM is, I wouldn't recommend this book. Furthermore, the somewhat blinkered barrage would put me off doing business with IBM too.

This was the most unbiased book I have bought in a long time. Just a long commercial for IBM BigInsight, as well as hyping Big Data analytics. Some interesting use cases (I will give them that), but beside from that, nothing.
