There is very little that one would get from this book vs spending some time on Wikipedia reading about data analysis.
Some chapters are completely devoid of python code and examples. The author describes several methods and ideas, but implements very little.
A complete beginner is better off simply installing Anaconda and following any online tutorial on matplotlib.
Anyone remotely more experienced should skip this book anyway.

More like an encyclopaedic introduction than a tutorialReviewed in the United Kingdom on 31 December 2019
Poorly edited and writtenReviewed in the United Kingdom on 26 August 2019
Maybe my expectations were wrong but I'm really surprised at how poor I found this book given the strength of the reviews. I found it poorly written and badly edited. There is some very basic beginners tutorial material in the earlier chapters but it then covers a lot of stuff at very high level about data analysis without actually showing you exactly how to do it in Python. It's the first technical book in a long time that I'm going to return.
