If you’re an investor or an executive seeking to navigate new data-driven opportunities, this is a must-read.”

“It’s rare to have a chance to learn about a field from someone who combines the intellectual rigor of an academic, the ease of a good storyteller, the vision of an industry-changing entrepreneur, and the straightforward pragmatism of a company-building CEO. It is especially rare to learn about a subject as important, pervasive, and potentially confusing as data, particularly today. Tom, Chris, and Vivek bring all their considerable experience to deliver on that promise.”

– Alex Rosen, Managing Director, Ridge Ventures

“There are very few resources out there that can truly help newcomers and seasoned marketers alike make sense of the data-marketing landscape and hone their skills.
