Subject: Books for self-learner

Here are a couple of recommendations:

William Lay: I'm also a self-learner and recommend two books that were perfect for me:

  • "Machine Learning", T. Mitchell, McGraw-Hill
  • "Data Mining", I. Witten and E. Frank
Ross Betinger recommends:

  • Data Mining Techniques by Berry and Linoff
  • if you have a good statistical background: The Elements of Statistical Learning by Hastie, Tibshirani, and Friedman.
