Rick Davies comment: This looks like a very useful book and I have already ordered a copy. Rapid Miner is a a free open source suite of data mining algorithms that can be assembled as modules, according to purpose. I have used Rapid Miner a lot for one specific purpose, to construct Decision Tree models of relationships between project context and intervention conditions and project outcomes. For more on data mining, and Decision Trees in particular, see my Data Mining posting on the Better Evaluation website
