Great starting point
I might listen to the first few chapters again to note down some of the examples and use them during my presentations.
This is the first of the set of books that I am reading on Big Data.
The story of the guy who joined Amazon to help people find books was very interesting.
Yes,but I was able to listen to this book in a week
This book demystifies Big Data and busts certain myths people may have about it. After reading the book you know what to expect from Big Data. May be a chapter on what to do next for people wanting to know more about Big Data and how to get started on it might have been helpful.
