I am hoping to put this on my pre-ordered or Amazon Wish list. The book the common people who wanted to do data mining with , but were unable to ask aloud they didnt know much. It is written by the seminal Australian authority on data mining Dr Graham Williams whom I interviewed here at http://decisionstats.com/2009/01/13/interview-dr-graham-williams/
Data Mining for the masses using an ergonomically designed Graphical User Interface.
Thank you Springer. Thank you Dr Graham Williams

- Encourages the concept of programming with data – more than just pushing data through tools, but learning to live and breathe the data
- Accessible to many readers and not necessarily just those with strong backgrounds in computer science or statistics
- Details some of the more popular algorithms for data mining, as well as covering model evaluation and model deployment
Data mining is the art and science of intelligent data analysis. By building knowledge from information, data mining adds considerable value to the ever increasing stores of electronic data that abound today. In performing data mining many decisions need to be made regarding the choice of methodology, the choice of data, the choice of tools, and the choice of algorithms.
Throughout this book the reader is introduced to the basic concepts and some of the more popular algorithms of data mining. With a focus on the hands-on end-to-end process for data mining, Williams guides the reader through various capabilities of the easy to use, free, and open source Rattle Data Mining Software built on the sophisticated R Statistical Software. The focus on doing data mining rather than just reading about data mining is refreshing.
The book covers data understanding, data preparation, data refinement, model building, model evaluation, and practical deployment. The reader will learn to rapidly deliver a data mining project using software easily installed for free from the Internet. Coupling Rattle with R delivers a very sophisticated data mining environment with all the power, and more, of the many commercial offerings.
