I was just buying a book for school (Pattern Recognition and Nueral Networks) from Amazon, and I threw a basketball stat geek book into my cart as well (Basketball on Paper). The website gave me some suggestions for purchase based on my cart, like the Wages of Wins (another hoops stat geek book, already read it), Modern Applied Statistics with S, goes along with the Nueral Network book, have a library copy right next to me.

Amazon also suggested season two of Arrested Development. Apparently people who like books on data mining, who also like books about basketball statistics, also like Arrested Development. I love that show. Nice work Amazon, if I had a job I’d probably buy it.
