4out of 5

Pros: Well-written, Easy to understand, Helpful examples

Best Uses: Intermediate

I’ve only made it through the first few chapters, and the book is not complete, but I have been getting regular updates which is great. So far though it is well written and as far as I can tell there are very few technical errors.

It starts with a “Whetting your appetite” chapter where the author takes you on a journey through the possibilities of data analysis in Python; its a lot of fun.

The chapter on getting the most our of IPython has made this book worth the purchase price alone, its my new editor and I love it.

Highly recommended for Bioinformaticians or biologists who have to use R, but would prefer to stick with their beloved Python as much as possible.
