For some time now, I have been using the hashtag #datamustread on LinkedIn and Twitter to regularly recommend books that are essential for a data journey. At the end of this year, I would like to put together some absolute highlights that I consider to be absolute #datamustread books:

📖 True or False by Cindy L. Otis
📖 Info We Trust by RJ Andrew
📖 Tools and Weapons by Brad Smith
📖 Data Science for Business by Foster Provost and Tom Fawcett
📖 Decisively Digital by 24 thought leaders interviewed by me

True or False: A CIA Analyst’s Guide to Spotting Fake News
