"… covers pretty much all the core data mining algorithms. It also covers several useful topics that are not covered by other data mining books such as univariate and multivariate control charts and wavelet analysis. Detailed examples are provided to illustrate the practical use of data mining algorithms. A list of software packages is also included for most algorithms covered in the book. These are extremely useful for data mining practitoners. I highly recommend this book for anyone interested in data mining."

"This is an excellent book for graduate students, professionals, or consultants who want to learn the different methods of data mining. The template that the author used: theory, example, software, references are very effective and efficient in conveying the general idea. The detailed examples are extremely helpful."
