You can learn a lot about a book by reviewing its bibliography: often, an author’s biases and beliefs will be on full display there.

I suppose that’s the same for me: if you list all the books I cited in Advancing into Analytics: From Excel to Python and R, you’ll see that I really like O’Reilly books, and that you need to know more than statistical analysis in Excel, R and Python to be a data analyst.

This PDF guide lists all the books I referred to in Advancing into Analytics, sorted alphabetically by title with the publisher’s name and a brief description of each.

It’s a treasure trove of some of the best titles in analytics. You can start with my book — learn here how to purchase or even read it for free — and work your way through the list by interest, A-Z, or whatever works for you.

However you decide to read mine and these other books, please leave a review to help other data analysts identify the best analytics resources.
