's review

it was amazing

An informative and interesting new addition to the field of Social Media Mining, this book explains the gist of social media mining and analytics with R in a concise and easy to understand manner for the reader,from a new starter in the field of analytics to a skilled analytics worker who wants to understand and implement social media mining solutions or simply a person who just wants to know about the field .

The book is written logically with a steady build up with details pertaining to social media as a source of information and what information could be derived from it , challenges faced in the same and analytics solutions(with R language- a definite plus) have been descibed before diving into details of the solutions which have been well supplemented with diagrammatical and programmatical representions.

The best part about the book are the numerous case studies which pose a scenario/question,and the detailed logical steps and flows used in resolving and solutioning the same which provides the reader with a roadmap to develop algorithms for his future work.

Definitely recommended,its conciseness and preciseness makes it a read more like a study guide and project book than a detailed and dry textbook which is to great importance most of us with short term attention spans who do not have the patience to go through 1000 pages or more ...
