Data Science from Scratch, second edition
(For now the first edition is still available too.)
Praise for the first edition
A pretty darn good book for teaching modern data science from an applied perspective. http://t.co/cEThsXwFzH— Balaji S. Srinivasan (@balajis) May 25, 2015
@joelgrus Finishing up your book and the MapReduce chapter kind of contains the phrase "data science big fiction." (with some integers). A+— Trey Causey (@treycausey) May 22, 2015

It's an especially fun read in a somewhat crowded book genre and also has a refreshingly functional approach in the code.— Trey Causey (@treycausey) April 23, 2015
Joel's previous book Thinking Spreadsheet, is available at Amazon.com.
Joel's first book, Your Religion Is False, is also available at Amazon.com.
He has several other books in progress, and very soon he'll decide which one to finish first.
