Interesting, but...

The book is interesting but goes too much into Watson, the IBM computer's performance in Jeopardy, and repeats themes mentioned earlier in the book without anything significant. The reader's performance, though making an effort to be amusing and showing talent, can be annoying!

Not a great book

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I don't know who would enjoy the book.It only talks about concepts nothing concrete.

Good overview but no technical content

I wanted to understand how Predictive Analytics are implemented and the techniques that can be used. This book provides a good general overview of Predictive Analytics but seems to dwell onerously on convincing the reader that the subject is worth its weight, and less on practical techniques and processes.

Childish, terribly immature performance

I will try and return the audio book because I cannot bring myself to switch it back on to listen to the immature narration one more time, as it was meant to be recorded for preschoolers and performed on stage. I have had listened to plenty of audio books from literature to non-fiction but have never encountered anything like this before, I am totally flabbergasted.
