This review is from: Data Smart: Using Data Science to Transform Information into Insight (Paperback)
It helps you develop strong intuition for algorithms you might already have used. The author is so knowledgeable that can explain "cosine similarity" without any mathematics and you still get the full feeling of it (try Wikipedia instead). After a while you get into the mentality of "how would I explain this with Excel" - which is a good habit to have. Before you apply to Tb of data, showcasing with a spreadsheet what you are trying to do and verifying that the outputs give meaningful results could save tons of money and time on data science projects. Great book - great idea - very well written. It also reads way faster than a typical 350 page book because of the graphs/Excel screenshots etc. (this is good). Well done - we want more like this!
