This week, Packt Publishing asked me to review IPython Notebook Essentials by L. Felipe Martins. They sent me an eBook copy to review. I’ve always been interesting in learning about the IPython Notebook, but had never gotten around to it, so this seemed like a great way to learn more.


Quick Review

  • Why I picked it up: I was asked by the publisher to read the book.
  • Why I finished it: I only read the Notebook sections of the book. The rest I just skimmed.
  • I’d give it to: Someone who already knows Python and is a data scientist

Packt Publishing has partnered with my blog to give away 2 copies of their ebook version of Mastering Object-oriented Python by Steven Lott. You can read my full book review here, but frankly, I thought it was one of best advanced Python books I’ve read in a long time. It’s also based around Python 3, although most of the concepts will work with Python 2.
