Review

Harkness has the perfect combination of wit, charm and statistical insight to crunch big data. It's the book about stats, life and big data we've all been waiting for. (Matt Parker, Stand-up Mathematician)

Harkness raises some very big questions indeed, not just about the grandiose claims of the big data evangelists, but also about how in the age of universal surveillance we can defend the concept of privacy. (The Herald)

A wonderful collection of fascinating data stories, all told in Timandra's smart and chatty style. But this book also asks the important questions. If big data brings new opportunities, just what are the implications? (Hannah Fry, author and mathematician)

A brilliant guide to our brave new world. (Brian Clegg)

This book is a great read - full of interesting stories and fun interviews. But it is not just another credulous tale of technological wonders - Harkness is suitably sceptical of the hype about data analytics, and serious about the challenges is brings. (David Spiegelhalter, author and mathematician)

Book Description

What is Big Data, and why should you care? This book tells you everything you need to know (and plenty of stuff you don't)
