Back in the middle of 2018 MIT Press published my Data Science book, co-written with John Kelleher. It book was published as part of their Essentials Series.
During the few months it was available in 2018 it became a best seller on Amazon, and one of the top best selling books for MIT Press. This happened again in 2019. Yes, two years running it has been a best seller!
2020 kicks off with the book being translated into Korean and Chinese. Here are the covers of these translated books.
The Japanese and Turkish translations will be available in a few months!
Go get the English version of the book on Amazon in print, Kindle and Audio formats.
