"The book contains a nice mix of philosophical musings, survey articles and cutting-edge research. It was designed as 'a useful resource for seasoned practitioners and enthusiastic neophytes alike' . . . Enthusiastic neophytes are still left with plenty to get their teeth into. In summary, I am happy to recommend the book to those seeking to broaden their understanding of the underpinning methodologies for analysing Big Data." ~ Richard J. Samworth, University of Cambridge, UK
". . . Handbook of Big Data is the first compilation on this emerging subject in our field and is therefore highly recommended to all statisticians and computer scientists."
~The International Biometric Society
"The book strikes a great balance between the breadth and depth of recent research-active topics. It is an excellent reference book to keep for both academic researchers and industrial practitioners. It is also a good reference book for whoever teaches in the area of big data analysis.
~Journal of the American Statistical Association
