Data Mining Book Review: Thinking with Data

twdThis short book by Max Shron is a good reference to learn about key concepts behind data-driven decision making. One of the most important notion of the book is the emphasis on asking the right question. Indeed, you shouldn’t start with the data, but rather with the question (the problem to solve). The book is full of case studies which are very well described. My only concern is about the number of questions that the author asks, which is maybe exaggerated. In conclusion, Thinking with Data is a short journey that shows formal questions behind data-driven decision making.
