On the back of my text book (emphasis mine)

"The UNPARALLELED author team of Berry and Linoff are back with an INVALUABLE revised edition to their GROUNDBREAKING text!"

Wow you guys. That's pretty hard-core superlative for a Data-mining text book. How about: "You have to buy this for your class, suckas! It doesn't suck!"

Come on... UNPARALLELED??? Like there's never been an author team in the history of the printed word that achieved so much synergy? And really, how much more valuable is the revised edition as to make it INVALUABLE? Should i just go ahead and throw my signed first edition into the fire?

Way to go Berry and Linoff's editor. Way to go.
