We all know that the field of data and analytics is huge and intimidating. It is a long slog to becoming comfortable. During the author’s own long slog until arriving at the book, something exciting bubbled to the surface. There is a big difference between what we need to know and everything there is to know. We need to know what is possible as insight for decisions and functioning, we need to know how to get to the insight and, finally, we need to be able to interpret the insight. Just as the book does, we can leave the rest to the data scientists.
