Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I guess I've been a data scientist without knowing it because there have so far been very few new things introduced in this book Lots of "padding" chapters. For example- If you know a bit of python, you can skip section I. If you don't know python, you'll need another book for that!
The examples in section ii are really useful, but kind of basic. It leaves me wanting more
I skimmed section iii, since it was basically the helpfile to the software used in this book. The types of visuals are important to know, but very basic. I was hoping to encounter something new here!
I'm about to start section iv, but I'm not too hopeful.
It really helped me get up to speed quickly on numerical processing in Python 2.7
