    1. I loved this book. It not only shows how to use visual methods for exploratory analysis of data, it also offers a highly accessible intro on regression analysis, it's pitfalls and some cool techniques to get you started. I asked the author for the data files and simply started to recreate and improve on the analytical that he showered in the text.

    2. UsefulI read this for Dr. Jank's graduate level course Statistical Data Mining and it was very useful. I would recommend this book.
