I gave up at chapter 5

This was not meant to be an audio book. As others note, the narration is terrible. I'm not sure it wasn't narrated by a computer voice. The paperwork pauses .. are ... way ... to ... long ... between ... sentences. it makes for a very copy flow.

Additionally, the material is superficial, with no substance. lots of lists, with little to no substance to explain the content on the lists. As an audio book there is no way to remember all the list items as you listen.

excellent overview

This is an excellent overview to the complex world of machine learning. I was able to get a beginners understanding of the process well as I learned of this through the audio book. Great overall for helping with a tough knowledge to gain.

it is very specific


The discussion has been very specific, although this is really intended for people who have basic knowledge on machine learning. I’m also planning on consulting data analytics books too to enhance my learning

appreciate it


Appreciate this audio book. It has aided me in understanding the frustrating parts in machine learning. I’m confident that I’ll be able to master the technical materials of the said subject in no time

An astoundingly thought provoking and imaginative collection... Most collections are hit and miss, this one is all hits... Love the unique thought processes and scenarios delivered to us w/ encouragement to consider and cogitate... Stories off center and kilter intriguing and teasing dexterous minds... You’ll wanna give some little, or large, thought once done w/ each... Some won’t like the author’s notes following each, but I dug them tremendously... Narration is very good... Fans will gobble it up, and if you’re a neophyte to the Howey creations this could be an excellent appetizer to get started on your way....

awesome creture

This is terrific material for new, aspiring science fiction writers--it's like attending a writers’ workshop--and it adds depth to the science fiction fan listener’s enjoyment.

very detailed

Happy to offer this book a glowing endorsement to beginners. Nothing in this book is intimidating. I was worried that I might get lost halfway through after the author started introducing the various algorithms. But no, this is where the book got significantly better. The visual examples and clear instructions made the rest of the book a breeze to follow. Although it was easy to follow, . For a high-level introduction, it was concise and detailed.

CLEAR GUIDE

Clear and concise introduction to ML. If you don’t have a background in data science, I wouldn’t let this stop you from picking up this book. My own expertise is in mobile web development, which is outside the scope of this book title, but I had no problems going through it.

WELL EXPLAINED

Highly visual and easy to follow
I'd strongly recommend this book. What I liked about it were the visual explanations of algorithms and the practical explanation of k-means clustering, PCA and linear regression. There's not the same detailed guide for the chapter on neutral networks which was a shame. but it is an absolute beginner's book after all.

useful book

The book is short but I think that's it's strong suit. I suspect it's usefulness will wear off as this information becomes more foundational knowledge through my research into ML but as a beginner in the field, I find that having an easy to navigate reference book for the algorithms I need to learn to become an ML expert is very useful

machine learning

As a beginner I felt the pace of the book was very manageable and each concept is well explained with clear points, often backed up with visual illustrations. You get a good context on what is ML, the algorithms that power ML, and guidance on further learning careers. This book is not a substitute for a textbook but would be a nice complementary resource for anyone starting out in this subject. I feel that business folks or journalists who don’t have a lot of time to sit down and learn this advanced field and who need a rapid snapshot of ML would do well to this book. As a title geared to ‘absolute beginners’, I would not recommend to more advanced stage learners to this book. For me though it hit the spot. Would look forward to a second title in this series if there is one.

great overview

This is a fantastic book for the absolute beginner. Although extremely elementary in content, it is very useful for someone with no background
