Reviews

"I enjoyed Rachel and Cathy's book, it's readable, informative, and like no other book I've read on the topic of statistics or data science."
--Andrew Gelman
Professor of statistics and political science, and director of the Applied Statistics Center at Columbia University

"I got a lot out of Doing Data Science, finding the chapter organization on business problem specification, analytics formulation, data access/wrangling, and computer code to be very helpful in understanding DS solutions."
--Steve Miller
