Its on my list of books that I will read once I can track down a copy (shipping costs to Australia from Amazon are too high to be worth ordering from there)

I’m not familiar with Amazon’s requirements because I use a different publisher for my ebooks, but I have to wonder if Bruce couldn’t sell anyone a copy directly in any electronic format. I’ve emailed plenty of my books that way.

“On what Data did Amazon the Goliath base this on?”

That’s a good question. It’s not sales. I believe it’s an editorial decision.

“On What Data…”

In that case it truly is the raw data, actually reading the book. No Big Data needed. Proof that sometimes you need the context and not just the sales metadata. Didn’t know that still happened,

Great audiobook for my frequent roadtrips.

You did an excellent job in creating a work that non-tech folks can understand.

Accolades well deserved!

But I’ll still be on you for going too easy on LE 🙂

Congratulations Bruce! Data and Goliath is a fantastic book and I’ve recommended it to many after I read it.

I owe you a review for a previous book which disappeared into one of many cardboard boxes, but did just finish this one, for which I will post a review. I don’t consider it a complete penance, only a start.
I found it a good, well-paced read, and will inform family and peers.
