Book Review: Machine Learning with Python Cookbook

Posted by Chris Moffitt in articles   

This article is a review of Chris Albon’s book, Machine Learning with Python Cookbook. This book is in the tradition of other O’Reilly “cookbook” series in that it contains short “recipes” for dealing with common machine learning scenarios in python. It covers the full spectrum of tasks from simple data wrangling and pre-processing to more complex machine learning model development and deep learning implementations. Since this is such a fast moving and broad topic, it is nice to get a new book that covers the latest topics and presents them in a compact but very useful format. Bottom line, I enjoyed reading this book and think it will be a useful resource to have on my python bookshelf. Read on for some more details about the book and who will benefit most from reading it.
