Choice quote for me was: "The problems that we face today, both big ones in society like the current health care debate and smaller ones like strategic business decisions, do not exist because we lack information, but because we donâ t understand it. They can be solved only by developing skills and tools to make sense of information that is often complex. In other words, the major obstacle to solving modern problems isnâ t the lack of information, solved by acquiring it, but the lack of understanding, solved by analytics."
