I was disappointed by this book
on June 28, 2014
I was disappointed by this book. It purports to present stats in the Python environment, as a starter for people who are light in stats and heavy in Python. It's a thin book, but that would be fine if it delivered on its premise. The data he uses is not obtainable by a quoted link and the code in the book amounts, over many pages, to under 100 lines of Python. The statistics are bare-bones definitions that are quite well covered, better covered, in other books.
I was especially interested in the book because he promised to make some of the arduous formulae more understandable in the prospect of code. No code for those parts though.
