"The authors provide enough theory to enable practical application, and it is this practical focus that separates this book from most, if not all, other books on this subject."- Dorian Pyle, Director of Modeling at Numetrics and an internationally known author of Data Preparation for Data Mining (Morgan Kaufmann, 1999) and Business Modeling for Data Mining (Morgan Kaufmann, 2003) "This book would be a strong contender for a technical data mining course. It is one of the best of its kind."- Herb Edelstein, Principal, Data Mining Consultant, Two Crows Consulting. "It is certainly one of my favorite data mining books in my library"- Tom Breur, Principal, XLNT Consulting, Tilburg, The Netherlands
