Comments about oreilly Developing Analytic Talent:
Can't really recommend this over any other book. The author seems to be very good at self-promotion, pushing his own methods and credentials. I don't know much about those methods myself, but that's not usually a good sign.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
