Predict This! Music Video

I narrated my first non-fiction book this past winter and I found the experience very pleasant.  The book is Predictive Analytics: The Power to Predict Who Will Click, Buy, Lie, or Die by Eric Siegel.  I have always been wary of reading non-fiction aloud as I had the impression narrating would be boring without any characters or plot to portray, although I have read some fiction that apparently had both but lord help me if I could tell the difference.

But this book was very much fun to read and all of the credit goes to the author, Eric, whose humorous style blends history, anecdotes, technobabble, nerd culture, and some truly fascinating ideas that is the stuff science (non)fiction is made of to create a warm introduction into a field that would send most of us screeching with utter abandonment.

Included in the audiobook (which will see its own post here soon enough) is the funky rap tune “Predict This!”–an all-original song, also written by Eric.  It can be quite catchy, so don’t go blaming me when you find yourself humming it.  And if you keep your eyes  peeled, you will see someone familiar around 3:10.

You can pick up a copy of Eric’s book on Amazon.com or from his website Predictive Analytics World, where you can find more information on predictive analytics as well.
