This book would be a good introduction to a real book about Big Data. There's some good concepts in it, but it barely touches the issue making it sound like a introduction book about data itself, not big data. Dealing with big data brings some issues specific to the task that were not addressed.
Some questions I still have: what are the technologies I can apply in order to deal with huge amounts of data? Where should I store it? What do I plug-in in order to extract some information from it? Where do I get more information? What kind of professionals should I hire? I already have the damned smart questions, I have the datasets, how do I move on? Hiring the author is the only solution?
If my customers ask me about big data I'll have nothing pragmatic to tell them.

Mostly stuff you already know. Really seems like the book was written for an older and less tech savvy person.

A collection of a few anecdotes and general information on "big data". Some sections are akin to listening to someone read from a dictionary. It's fairly devoid of any in depth discussion. If you've never heard the term big data or possibly never even used a computer before, this book is for you.

Great book, well presented and dispels a lot of myths and hype around big data. Highly recommended.
