Great Subject, Great Graphics
The exploration of Big Data is a really cool subject with many implications. I've been reading quite a bit about it but this is the most in-depth content I've seen. The book is stunning.
This is a book similar to Al Gore's Our Choice. It has lots of interesting little stories and interactive features about the use of Big Data today.
Really great introduction into Big Data and what the future may bring for technology.
