Praise for Thinking with Data

"Thinking with Data gets to the essence of the process, and guides data scientists in answering that most important question—what’s the problem we’re really trying to solve?”

Hilary Mason Data Scientist in Residence at Accel Partners; co-founder of the DataGotham Conference

Thinking with Data does a wonderful job of reminding data scientists to look past technical issues and to focus on making an impact on the broad business objectives of their employers and clients. It’s a useful supplement to a data science curriculum that is largely focused on the technical machinery of statistics and computer science.”

John Myles White Scientist at Facebook; author of Machine Learning for Hackers and Bandit Algorithms for Website Optimization

“This is a great piece of work. It will be required reading for my team.”

Nick Kolegraff Director of Data Science at Rackspace

“Shron’s Thinking with Data is a nice mix of academic traditions, from design to philosophy, that rescues data from mathematics and the regime of pure calculation. … These are lessons that should be included in any data science course!”

Mark Hansen Director of David and Helen Gurley Brown Institute for Media Innovation; Graduate School of Journalism at Columbia University
