So, my suggestion for you is as follows. Pick up the book from a library. And go straight to a topic that you are somewhat familiar with. And try to see if Prof. Strang does an excellent job on that topic. I did that for a few of them, and I found that the book is not sufficient explaining those topics.
By the way, for CG method neither the book nor the video lectures are very useful. You will need the article by Jonathan Richard Shewchuk. You can find it online. This is the best for CG.

But somehow a limited description .
I think Strang did a fantastic job creating a useful book but also highlighting the beauty of math. This book is from 2007 but I think is great from a very contemporary point of view.
You would find a great explanation of the math behind data science problems and statistical analysis in a very condensed language, passionately explained but with no fluff.
If you are in a hurry and just want to decipher the math in other books like Hastie ESL or Bishop’s book, this is your book. If you want to deep dive and solve yourself a conjugate gradient problem, you get that too.
Considering all the things that Strang and MIT are giving for free, I am happy to pay for this book.
Highly recommendable for people that want to go the extra mile in computing science.
It is very difficilt to read it by yourself, you need to already know linear algebra and basic differential equations.
