Recently, I was linked to the Python Forum because one of my friends on the wxPython IRC channel said that Packt was trying to find reviewers for their new book, Numpy 1.5 Beginner’s Guide by Ivan Idris. I doubt they’re going to find many people on that website though. I’ve certainly never heard of it. Anyway, Packt was kind enough to give me a copy of it as an ebook, so I’ll be reading it over the next couple of weeks so I can review it for this website.
I haven’t used NumPy before, but I hear about it from time to time on the wxPython mailing list and I thought it sounded interesting. So I am glad that there’s a new beginner’s book on the topic. I hope it’s a good one. In the meantime, Packt gave me a link to chapter 3, so you can read that while you wait for my review. It looks like Doug Finke will also be doing a review of this book too, so you may want to keep an eye on his blog to see what he thinks too.
