Sentiment analysis and opinion mining is the field of study that
analyzes people's opinions, sentiments, evaluations, attitudes, and
emotions from written language. It is one of the most active research
areas in natural language processing and is also widely studied in data
mining, Web mining, and text mining. In fact, this research has spread
outside of computer science to the management sciences and social
sciences due to its importance to business and society as a whole. The
growing importance of sentiment analysis coincides with the growth of
social media such as reviews, forum discussions, blogs, micro-blogs,
Twitter, and social networks. For the first time in human history, we
now have a huge volume of opinionated data recorded in digital form for

Sentiment analysis systems are being applied in almost every business
and social domain because opinions are central to almost all human
activities and are key influencers of our behaviors. Our beliefs and
perceptions of reality, and the choices we make, are largely conditioned
on how others see and evaluate the world. For this reason, when we need
to make a decision we often seek out the opinions of others. This is
true not only for individuals but also for organizations.

This book is a comprehensive introductory and survey text. It covers all
important topics and the latest developments in the field with over 400
references. It is suitable for students, researchers and practitioners
who are interested in social media analysis in general and sentiment
analysis in particular. Lecturers can readily use it in class for
courses on natural language processing, social media analysis, text
mining, and data mining. Lecture slides are also available online.
