“The material is written by experts from nearly 40 institutions, including academia, industry, and government; they are mostly from the US, but also from Europe, Asia, and Australia. … The editors make readers aware of the scale of data generated from a variety of sources, which require immediate comprehensive analyses. … The value of this book might be in collecting papers that focused on the issues of big data, so interested parties can have a handy overview of related problems and prospective solutions.” (Janusz Zalewski, ACM Computing Reviews, September, 2012)
