"The emphasis on thinking informs the book throughout, and the end result is that the reader is challenged to think about problems of data analysis and the application of different analytical methods and tools. This is definitely not a book that simply teaches how to apply formulas; Jenert encourages the reader to learn to think about data analysis problems on a conceptual level."

"This book offers a deep approach to real world tasks. There is much more text than code...It is hard to fault this book except perhaps that at nearly 500 pages, it is too short! "

"This book is perfect for hands-on readers, wanting to achieve specific goals without getting entangled in formal definitions by getting right to the point. Here is an analogy: a Common Kite is depicted on the front cover of the book and as the bird waiting for its prey, youll be able to analyse the situation, understand it and take a clear decision after this read."
