Good If you know your Statistics

This is a good book if you know statistical analysis. Do you know what to use, when and where? If you do, this book is good because if you are going to use SAS for analysis you have got to know your statistics. What good would FORTRAN be if you didn't know Algebra? You need both.

An outstanding book for Project Managers

After having read dozen of books on this specific topic, I believe that this book is a remarkable tool for an experienced Project Manager. Wysocki,Beck and Crane did a very good job, because they have analyzed in a layman's language the most significant issues on this field. Very applicable information, well structured with easy to understand and implement examples. Their approach is customer orientated and one can learn how to monitor and control the process of a project, organize, recruit and manage a project team as well as estimate the length of a project. However, it addresses to experienced Project Managers with hands-on experience on CPM, Network scheduling and PERT method.

A book that you can learn nothing.

This is a book that surveys the all the commom ideas in data mining without teaching any of them. I only recommend this book for those who just want to see what's going on in data mining but do not need to learn anything.
