My name is Bruce Ratner, and I am a functioning dataholic. I do not feel guilty about my dataholism. But, I do lie about my data habits.

As I did well in kindergarten – “he shares and plays well with others" - I hope my twelve-step program helps others, like me, who love to data. The article is in the third edition of my book Statistical and Machine-Learning Data Mining: Techniques for Better Predictive Modeling, Analysis of Big Data.
