4.0 out of 5 stars Worth buying
An excellent book, though would have liked more emphasis on the technology and associated issues than the numerous examples of how big data is relevant to different sections. But we'll worth buying.

This book is full of the typical CxO level empty headed cheerleading that so annoys 99% of a companies workforce. Anyone reading this book and genuinely learning something from it, who has risen beyond the ranks of junior manager, should be ashamed of themselves.

If you know nothing at all about big data, then this might be the book for you; But first you should reflect on why you're looking for a big data book. If you're about to make a business decision then do yourself a favour, heed the words of Clint Eastwood "A man has got to know his limitations", and ask one of the people in your company that already understands the subject.

Given the accomplishments of the authors and contributors, I was expecting this to be a much better book. Most of the value seemed to be in the preface.
