Numpy is a fast matrix library that is at the core of scientific computing toolkits in Python - whether you are doing statistics, machine learning or signal processing (to name just a few possibilities), chances are you are using Numpy under the covers.

This book can help you write cleaner and fas ...more

It is very very short and simple book. It mains to cover NumPy, however there is a lot of mess and chapters include testing, analytics and etc. Very informative with references to Wikipedia.
