If you are expecting a book filled with examples of NoSQL databases like Hadoop and Cassandra, you are definitely going to be disappointed. The key with this book is to look at the cover. Data analysis is the main point of this book, and open source tools are really just a nice sidebar. The data analysis information is fairly solid and ranges from some basic methods, through statistics and eventually getting to some machine learning methods like clustering and categorization. The open source tools portions of the book are based on examples of the various analysis methods, but do not delve too deeply into how the tools work. Full Review >
