On the Shelf: Data Science Books

Colorful Books One of my favorite things about data nerds is that they’re always eager to learn. (I certainly know the feeling!) No matter how much education they have, no matter how many technical skills they possess, they always want more.

One of the best ways to go about gaining this knowledge is to read, read, read. Read the work of those who came before you, read to stay abreast of current technology, read anything you can get your hands on.

Want to know more about the business, sociology, or nitty—gritty of data science? Here are some great books on the discipline to get you on your way:
