They say too many cooks spoil the broth.
This however is not the case here. But at the same time the book can't be compared to a gourmet dish, despite legends of detective fiction writing like Agatha Christie, Dorothy Sayers, G.K. Chesterton and many more writers collaborating to write this book.
You may read it for its uniqueness of being the first collaborative novel by the greatest crime writers but don't have any great expectations..

Very picturesque and dramatic description about the lives of slaves and slave owners in southern states of America during 1800s. Though the book is titled Queen after the author Alex Haley's grandmother, I found the story of his great grandfather and great-great grandfather the Jacksons more gripping and interesting.

Written quite realistically , gives a feeling of true story which it is not.
Interesting in some places. Long drawn out and plainly boring in other places.
Though one should remember that this book was written almost 200 years ago in 1719 and has been quite popular since then.
Can't judge it by present day standards.

This book is an excellent Executive Guide on Data Science. Written in a fairly non-technical manner focusing more on business perspective rather than deep technicalities. Serves as a very good introduction to Data Science..

Will be a great addition in the library of a Sherlock Holmes fan. Lots of interesting trivia. Beware of the spoilers though if you have not read any of the 56 short stories and 4 novels featuring Sherlock Holmes.

Very moving and touching conversations between the author Mitch Albom and his dying professor Morrie Schwartz where the later shares his perspectives on the world, one's regrets, death, family,emotions, fear of aging, love, marriage, culture and forgiveness.
One of the best books I read this year.

A very good introduction to machine learning concepts.
Systematic organization of the topics, and ample examples provided makes it a worthwhile read.
Several important algorithms have been discussed along with their pros and cons with minimum use of advanced mathematics.
Much much better book to start with Machine Learning as compared to the "Machine Learning for Dummies" book which was pedagogically horrible.
