Description:
'Big data has the potential to make us healthier and more effective. Learn why, and what will happen, in Steve Lohr's important new book.' Eric Schmidt, executive chairman of Google

Data is the vital raw material in our modern information economy. There is already an incredible amount of digital data in the world, and it's doubling every two years. Business decisions used to be based on experience and intuition - now detailed data analysis is the name of the game. Those bits and bytes are transforming our world.
