Hi python.forum.io

My first post here! Usually find me on stackoverflow/R or RStudio community forums.

I have done a lot of R in the last few years. I'd like to grow similar skills in python. I am looking for a book that gives a solid overview of python suitable for mainly data science use. I have used Anaconda and Spyder a little so far. Spyder 4 is awesome.

I have been looking for a suitable book, but haven't found the right one yet. I am interested in pandas and numpy and matplotlib but a lot of books seem to stop there. I am not particularly interested in big data or machine learning.

I also have experience with VBA and Fortran, plus a bit of C++ and Matlab.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Simon
