Bridges the gap between science and business

This is the best book for understanding data science. It is written for a college-educated non-mathematician who wants to understand the potential of big data for providing business insights. It includes just enough technical detail so that a SAS or R programmer gets a good enough background to delve into the recommended reference and technical articles that the book suggests. This is such an interesting book. Never gets boring like the normal technical book stuff...
