Dataclysm by Christian Rudder

Dataclysm: Who We Are (When We Think No One's Looking)Dataclysm: Who We Are by Christian Rudder

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

With this book, Christian Rudder gives a very nice introduction to data science as a way to feed our understanding of our society by tools that were only dreamed of by sociologist a few years ago. This book provides clever analyses presented in a simple and intelligible way and is not shy of explaining where the data is not sufficient to provide understanding or can be misleading. After reading this book, I feel that I know more and I really want to tinker with data.
