Foreman, John W. New York: Wiley, 2014.

Foreman provides a technical how-to manual for one of the hottest topics in business these days – data mining. His goal is to introduce readers to the practice of data science in a comfortable and conversational way. The book begins with a primer on working with Microsoft Excel then uses hands-on exercises to describe techniques and practices used in data science such as cluster analysis, nut graphs, K-means, artificial intelligence, regression, forecasting and outlier detection.
