RE: [webanalytics] Eric Siegel Book Launch & Video Answering Questions on Predictive Analytics
- Eric kept me involved in the creation and writing of this book
and I can tell you it's a good one. Fun and fast to read. If you
know nothing about predictive analytics, this is a must read. If
you know a lot about predictive analytics, it's fun to relive the
better stories told well and enjoy the castoff characters.
Two thumbs up.
