Big Data and Data Science Books - A Baker's Dozen

Here are 13 informative and inspirational books on Big Data and Data Science.  This is definitely not intended to be a comprehensive list (since a complete list of such readings would itself be a form of "Big Data", and consequently the number of possibilities is a nearly uncountable number!

You might as well add mine Too Big to Ignore. The book makes the business case for big data. Not to be self-promotional, but I felt a little neglected when I saw this list and mine wasn't on it. :)
