Python Books - Recommendation
#1
Hi all,

I am 6 weeks into my Python journey. I like it. I have been using DataCamp.

Whilst I wait until they have a black Friday offer on, I am looking to brush up my skills via a good old fashion book.

I am fairly interested in the Data Side (Pandas, Matplotlib)

Two books I have heard are good are:-

- Automate the Boring Stuff
- Python for Data Analysis

Keen to hear people's thoughts :-)

Thanks

Please be aware that there are some excellent and free tutorials available.
Two of my favourites:

How to Think Like a Computer Scientist: Interactive Edition
and
Bernd Klein's Python course

I liked Data Wrangling with Python book on amazon
It uses facebook, linkdin, twitter api's to grab data
Al Swiegert also had a book Hacking ciphers now called Cracking Codes with Python it starts out slow and builds up fast Cracking Codes

The book is okay,not read all of it, Reviews.
There is notebook format of whole book,so can easy take a part(change and test) and run local.
Or eg use Colab Data-Indexing-and-Selection.ipynb now if you test can run(or change) cells from book.
