Like to read it too much
This textbook explains about concepts of Data Warehousing , OLAP, and Data Mining as well. The key algorithms and theory is described such Decision Tree Learning, Neural Networks and Sequences Pattern Mining. The example is very easy to understand. Also several approaches of Text Mining, Bio Mining and Spatial Mining is introducted. So the book's content is very well
Rating: 4 out of 5
a very good book
if you want to have an overview into how exactly data mining is done with a bit of practical flavor and more of the algorithmic inclination this book is for you. But i have been through a better bok so would rate it 4 instead of 5

Poorly worded. No depth
Dismal notation coupled with incomplete or incoherent explanations make this book frustrating to read.
The author needlessly inserts layers of abstraction, making otherwise simple concepts and formulas unnecessarily time-consuming to understand.
The provided examples do make up for some of the deficiencies of the author's notation and poor wording, but not enough to make this book worth buying.
The book covers many topics but does not go into sufficient depth. It's too technical for managers and not rigorous enough for technical professionals wishing to use data mining to solve real problems. If you are new to data mining, you may learn some useful overall concepts, but won't learn enough to apply them effectively. Experts should definitely look somewhere else.
