  1. I am very wary of books written by people who claim to be taking the wide eyed outsider s viewpoint, claiming no knowledge of the topic and talking to lots of people in the know despite the success of Bill Bryson s science book However, as soon as I came up against Timandra Harkness pointing out that data makes much sense as a singular collective noun for data points, so we should say What is data rather What are data something I ve been arguing for years , I knew that I was going to enjoy this [...]


  2. The humor element in footnotes felt very artificial in this book, irritated a lot Content of maybe 1 5th of this book ended up being of interest to me Felt the need to finish this reading just because but was really really eager to do so.


  3. Good if you want effectively a book length Sunday supplement piece introducing Big Data and going through some of the main uses, this is your book Harkness does the introduction with only a few forays into serious writing, and I thought it worked well for it The tone is chatty, with some jokey footnotes generally wince inducing, gloriously bad, which I liked The jokes are pared back towards the end, which I think helps Otherwise, it introduces some of the areas where modern means of harvesting [...]


  4. This is a rather lightweight journalistic introduction to big data but it might be useful to anyone who really has no idea what it is or what it may mean for our society It probably need not have been so lightweight since Harkness is clearly a sensible, measured and intelligent commentator.One feels a tentative proposal from someone still learning their way around the field reached a somewhat relaxed and possibly cynical publishing house who wanted to get something witty out into the popular mar [...]


  5. Both a quite good introduction to the topic of Big Data and describing the potential and risks of said technology Harkness goes into what it could do and shouldn t but also laments that we re just aiming for marginel efficiency increases and not the world changing ambitions Further and as a conclusion she insists that we are not just a data point, but we , or precisely a you and an I, real humans.


  6. The balance of humor comedy and introduction to Big Data fell flat A few interesting points were raised.


  7. I received an advance copy of this for review from NetGalley.Ms Harkness tackles a huge subject snark and handles it well in three parts the history of big data think census as the biggest driver what it s done for us or my take might be to us from business and science to and politics her own ideas on the future of big data and a prodding to the readerFirst, I am impressed with the access she had to some pretty amazing people places Large Hadron Collider How cool There are you ll just have to re [...]


  8. I wanted to read a fun introduction to big data before I got started on a course in bioinformatics This book was very broad, taught me some enjoyable facts for instance, the idea of using punched cards to program computers came from looms which used punched paper to encode patterns , and covered some of the interesting ethical issues regarding surveillance The only downside is that the humour in this book sometimes fell flat for me at one point the author jokes that Alan Turing clearly never had [...]


  9. An interesting book, anyone who listens to More or less on radio 4 would like this Lots of information about what big data is, who controls it etc I listened to a lot of it in the car and the sat nav talked over a lot of it which did not help The author makes what could be a dry subject entertaining.


  10. An insightful introductory look at Big Data and what it means for us and our privacy Useful to get you thinking about issues you might not have thought about before, particularly the darker side of our connected lifestyle An enjoyable read.


  11. To me, there is nothing in this book Nothing new There is no solid idea or claim I thought it was kind of scientific book, I end up reading something like from online news Disappointing


  12. First of all, thanks to Bloomsbury India for sending a review copy of the book to me If you are a working professional at a corporate startup you must have realized that the term Big Data has almost become ubiquitous If you aren t in this sector, then too you must have noticed something peculiar you visit an e commerce website and very soon you are seeing the ads for the products that your browsed through almost everywhere on internet Or, you just tweeted a few times about a particular commodity [...]



  13. Most informative in dealing with this most necessary issue of our time and while at it, most witty too
