    Probably the following 2 books also needs a mention. May be basic and elementary but definitely would give lot of comfort to starters on understanding the concepts and application of Data Science

    1) Data Science for Business – Foster Provost & Tom Fawcett
    2) Data Smart – John Foreman

    The link at the end of this sentence (above) doesn’t work:
    “Of course, it goes without saying – if you think there are more books, which you think should be added to this list, you should add them in this discussion thread.”
    I wanted to recommend R in a Nutshell.

    Add “Learning from Data” by Prof Yaser Abu – Mostafa to the list.

  • Dr.S.Jayaprakash says:

    Rogue Trader – Nick Leeson is a definite add to the list. Film is also available for those who hate to read this book 🙂
