My impression of the book was quite positive. It's a book based on examples, which incrementally introduce all the main features of the library. It is written with a simple language and easy to understand. The text covers many topics, from the NumPy installation to the integration of NumPy with other scientific libraries as Matplotlib and SciPy.

This book is aimed at people who know Python and need to start using scientific computing in their programs. It is also suitable for people who use anoth

I wrote this book, so I will leave the reviewing to other people.

It is the first and only book for beginners about NumPy. NumPy Beginner’s Guide is an action-packed guide for the easy-to-use, high performance, Python based free open source NumPy mathematical library using real-world examples. The book will teach you how to analyze large data sets with statistical functions and execute complex linear algebra and mathematical computations.
