Self Promotion – First book just published from Packt Publishing, R for Data Science

I would highly recommend the process for other potential writers out there. The staff at Packt was really helpful at all stages of the process.

R is an open software tool for performing data analysis.  It provides a clean, simple syntax for executing statistical analysis and resultant graphics.

How Google Works

Book by Eric Schmidt and Jonathan Rosenberg

I had expected just a bunch of stories about working at Google or maybe even some technical details.

Instead it is chock full of advice, rules of thumb, you name it – that should help out in any modern company. Everything is backed up by rule x worked well at company y when we did z. And, we came up with rule x because a, b, and c were messing things up.

Might even be a permanent bookcase item.
