    This book is typical of titles confined to a single vendor's too

    This book is typical of titles confined to a single vendor's tool. The focus is on this tool's features, not data mining. Learning the principles of data mining first will make a book like this unnecessary, and help you avoid pitfalls not covered by books like this one.

    If you want to understand data mining, I recommend titles such as:

    "Data Mining: Practical Machine Learning Tools and Techniques, Second Edition", by Witten and Frank ISBN: 0120884070


    "Data Mining, Second Edition : Concepts and Techniques, Second Edition", by Han and Kamber ISBN: 1558609016
