The author is clearly knowledgeable and experienced and the book is well written. If you are new to metrics, this book is a good primer that goes deep into some of the practices and tools to use to capture and interpret those metrics. So, if you are looking for a good and deep book on time series analysis that can help you to read and understand all those metrics you are capturing, this is the book.
