"Data is a precious thing and will last longer than the systems themselves."
—Tim Berners-Lee

You may not need Sir TimBL to tell you that harnessing and understanding big data is the hottest topic in the tech space. Or then again, you might. Either way, you'll benefit from the wide-ranging collection of new books on data collected below. Four of them are free downloads that we've created to help educate our customers. The rest are fresh books on a fast-moving subject. As always, please use the Request Review Copy button to receive your order and don't hesitate to contact us with further questions.
