    Comments about oreilly Data Mining: Practical Machine Learning Tools and Techniques, 3rd Edition:

    I have read several books on the ML, this is the best.
    Describes the many methods of ML are not blogged about in other books, links to publications for more detailed study.
    A small drawback is that bounded to the library Weka.
