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 Science1) 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.
