Publisher's Summary

Data science gets thrown around in the press like it's magic. Major retailers are predicting everything, from when their customers are pregnant to when they want a new pair of Chuck Taylors. It's a brave new world where seemingly meaningless data can be transformed into valuable insight to drive smart business decisions.

But how does one exactly do data science? Do you have to hire one of these priests of the dark arts, the "data scientist", to extract this gold from your data? Nope. Data science is little more than using straightforward steps to process raw data into actionable insight. And in Data Smart, author and data scientist John Foreman will teach how you how that's done within the familiar environment of a spreadsheet. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Not suitable for audio

I can't believe that this was made into an audio book! Gems such as "See figure 1-17" are sprinkled throughout. It really doesn't work unless you read the printed version while sitting at a computer with Excel open.

Not suitable for audio

This book is riddled with read-throughs of excel formulas. This is practically impossible to follow through audio.

Probably a decent read

Difficult to follow as an audiobook, probably because of how I process data, but even following the examples it was still difficult to take in.

Will probably still buy a physical copy of the book thought as the actual content seems very decent!
