The Data Source Handbook is interesting to me because, regardless of the mocking I’ve just given about the book’s small size, there certainly are a great deal of public data sources and APIs that give access to great information. There are nearly 55-60 APIs listed in this book, which might be part of the glitch: at roughly 2 data sources listed per page, there is no actual documentation other than a trivial description and an instance of the API call and result. Readers can use Data Source Handbook only as a set of public data sources and mug up more by checking APIs out online.
The book starts by providing a simple classification, that assists the reader find his way through the fifty seven different sources. Some of these can prove very beneficial, while the writer is honest in revealing definite hitches that some of the sources have. The links in the book are also a welcome addition (though I don’t actually know if it could work fine in any other way).
The actual advantage of Data Source Handbook is the complete amount of public data sources accessible. I knew of simply a few of these APIs before I read this book, and it’s that sort of book that’s easy to keep and refer to it when some data is required for an application. The book is structured in parts—websites, people, search, geo-location and more—so it’s simple to find what you need.
On the other hand, this book is certainly not for people with no programming skills. In my scenario (I have limited programming skills) it was a bit difficult to get used to the book. In addition to this, the main disadvantage of this book is that it’s short, but this is ordinary, as it is not meant to comprise full explanations.
There’s a simple word describing this book: toolbox. The Data Source Handbook is a good source of free APIs for a great number of different applications. It’s beneficial, possibly not a book you would refer to frequently but a great source of reference for those who depend on external information to enhance their existing solution. The book is pretty short and possibly could do with a bit more in terms of other 3rd party APIs, and a great deal of the APIs are only beneficial for the U.S, but other than that, I really liked this book. I did enjoy the author explanation about pros and cons of using each of the APIs, which is a time-saver.
Overall, this is a great toolbox for developers longing to enrich their services. I enjoyed testing while reading the book (and learning too, in order to develop my programming skills) and I’ll certainly keep on searching for associated titles. Just summon up this book is only a developer’s preliminary point to finding and using a public API.
