Reviews

'This book provides a comprehensive guide to state-of-the-art statistical techniques that are used to power recommender systems. ... The text is authoritative and well written, with the authors drawing on their extensive experience of researching, implementing and evaluating real-world recommender systems. The book considers the underlying mathematics of the techniques it describes and, as such, is aimed at a readership with a strong background in statistics and cognate subjects. However, while readers without such a background are likely to find the mathematics somewhat challenging, the prose descriptions are highly readable and enable readers to understand the key principles and ideas which underpin the various approaches. This book should be of interest to those involved with recommender systems as well as to those with a broader interest in machine learning.'
