A clear explanation of a useful tool. This is a quick way to jump-start data tidying on largish projects.

Disclosure: the publisher of this book provided me with a free copy in exchange for a review. The opinions expressed in the review are my own.

While OpenRefine is an extremely useful "power tool for messy data", its power can be difficult to master without a great deal of trial and error on the part of the user.
