Book Awards for Predictive Analytics
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
"Predictive Analytics" Named Winner in 2014 Small Business Book Awards
Cleveland, OH, June 9, 2014 - "Predictive Analytics" has been named a Winner in the 2014 Small Business Book Awards in the category of Technology. The book's full title is "Predictive Analytics: The Power to Predict Who Will Click, Buy, Lie, or Die."
This award is determined by a panel of expert judges, in contrast to the Small Business Book Awards' "Community Choice Winners," which are determined by online voting (clicks).
"If data and analytics seem dry to you, read this book anyway. You'll become a believer," posted the Small Business Book Awards upon the nomination of "Predictive Analytics" in May of 2014. The nomination announcement also stated that the book "provides actionable tips you can put into play for your organization immediately."
The award's producer, Small Business Trends, published a book review of "Predictive Analytics" on July 6, 2013, which stated that the book "serves as a clarion call for business managers to understand the possibilities and myths... Ultimately it's an excellent primer for developing some ideas on how data can enhance a business... 'Predictive Analytics' is excellent, not just for its trend-of-the-day subject, but for the way it treats its subject - respect and reverence, with the right scientific doubt."
The Small Business Book Awards celebrate the best business books that appeal to entrepreneurs, small business owners, CEOs, managers and their employees. The Awards also recognize key resources supporting business book authors and the publishing industry.
"The Small Business Book Awards are a way to acknowledge the books that small business owners and entrepreneurs appreciated over the past year," said Ivana Taylor, Book Editor at Small Business Trends, which produces the Awards.
The Winners were chosen by an expert panel of 24 judges from the small business community. The criteria for judging the Winners included: quality and quantity of the content conveyed; usefulness to small business owners and entrepreneurs; and freshness of the subject matter or how it was treated. The level of fan support for each nominee was also taken into account by the judges when choosing the Winners.
Two books from each of eight (8) categories were selected as winners. "Predictive Analytics" was a nominee and winner in the category, Technology.
