The list below based on the list compiled by Pedro Martins, but we added the book authors and year, sorted alphabetically by title, fixed spelling, and removed the links that did not work.

  1. An Introduction to Data Science by Jeffrey Stanton, Robert De Graaf, 2013.
    An introductory level resource developed by Syracuse University
  2. An Introduction to Statistical Learning: with Applications in R by G. Casella, S, Fienberg, I Olkin, 2013.
    Overview of statistical learning based on large datasets of information. The exploratory techniques of the data are discussed using the R programming language.
  3. A Programmer’s Guide to Data Mining by Ron Zacharski, 2012.
    A guide through data mining concepts in a programming point of view. It provides several hands-on problems to practice and test the subjects taught on this online book.
  4. Bayesian Reasoning and Machine Learning by David Barber, 2012.
    focusing on applying it to machine learning algorithms and processes. It is a hands-on resource, great to absorb all the knowledge in the book.
  5. Big Data, Data Mining, and Machine Learning: Value Creation for Business Leaders and Practitioners by Jared Dean, 2014.
    On this resource the reality of big data is explored, and its benefits, from the marketing point of view. It also explains how to storage these kind of data and algorithms to process it, based on data mining and machine learning.
  6. Data Mining and Analysis: Fundamental Concepts and Algorithms by Mohammed J. Zaki, Wagner Meira, Jr., Data Mining and Analysis: Fundamental Concepts and Algorithms, Cambridge University Press, May 2014.
    A great cover of the data mining exploratory algorithms and machine learning processes. These explanations are complemented by some statistical analysis.
  7. Data Mining and Business Analytics with R by Johannes Ledolter, 2013.
    Another R based book describing all processes and implementations to explore, transform and store information. It also focus on the concept of Business Analytics.
  8. Data Mining Techniques: For Marketing, Sales, and Customer Relationship Management by Michael J.A. Berry, Gordon S. Linoff, 2004.
    A data mining book oriented specifically to marketing and business management. With great case studies in order to understand how to apply these techniques on the real world.
  9. Data Mining with Rattle and R: The Art of Excavating Data for Knowledge Discovery by Graham Williams, 2011.
    The objective of this book is to provide you lots of information on data manipulation. It focus on the Rattle toolkit and the R language to demonstrate the implementation of these techniques.
  10. Gaussian Processes for Machine Learning by Carl Edward Rasmussen and Christopher K. I. Williams, 2006.
    This is a theoretical book approaching learning algorithms based on probabilistic Gaussian processes. It’s about supervised learning problems, describing models and solutions related to machine learning.

Very interesting compilation published here, with a strong machine learning flavor (maybe machine learning book authors — usually academics — are more prone to making their books available for free). Many are O’Reilly books freely available. Here we display those most relevant to data science. I haven’t checked all the sources, but they seem legit. If you find some issue, let us know in the comment section below. Note that at DSC, we also have our free books:

There are several sections in the listing in question:

  1. Data Science Overviews (4 books)
  2. Data Scientists Interviews (2 books)
  3. How To Build Data Science Teams (3 books)
