Summary

If you're at the beginner's stage and are looking to gain new knowledge about machine learning, then keep reading....

Do not listen to this audiobook if you're looking for a boring textbook containing a lot of dry math and programming lingo.

Every day, someone is giving up on learning about machine learning. Many people miss out on furthering their career, and perhaps even the progress of our species without even realizing

You see, most beginners make the same mistakes when first delving into the topic of machine learning. They start off with a resource containing too many unrelatable facts, math, and programming lingo that will put them to sleep rather than ignite their passion.

But that is all about to change.

This new book on machine learning will explain the concepts, methods, and history behind machine learning, including how our computers became vastly more powerful but infinitely less intelligent than ever before and why every tech company and their grandmother want to keep track of us 24/7, siphoning data points from our electronic devices to be crunched by their programs that then try to become virtual crystal balls, predicting our thoughts before we even have them. 

Most of the book seems like science-fiction because, in a sense, it is, far beyond what an average person would be willing to believe is happening. 

Here are some of the topics that are discussed in this book:

  • What machine learning is
  • What the point of machine learning is
  • History of machine learning
  • Neural networks
  • Matching the human brain
  • Artificial Intelligence
  • AI in literature
  • Talking, walking robots
  • Self-driving cars
  • Personal voice-activated assistants
  • Data mining
  • Social networks
  • And much more!

A helpful for Machine Learner lovers.

Indeed, even without coding knowledge can comprehend this since it is composed for that sort of fledgling's level. The book gives top to bottom information to information analysis. So by and large this book was so basic, and I propose this book who love to peruse that sort of book

Good choice for new comers.

If you expect to teach yourself machine learning from this book, this is in my opinion, good choice. The references and illustrations give this book a particularly nice touch.

Nothing new, no insights

No insights if you follow the news about the subject. A bit more superficial than what I was expecting.

An outstanding introductory in audible.

Not an expensive audible at all but packed with great information, very clear in its definitions and very easy to understand. I just received it and I am nearly a third through the book. I am really enjoying this read!

A good read for beginners.


I have no idea about machine learning and algorithms before, one of my friend told me about it and suggested me this book. I attended a lot of sessions to understand machine learning but this book is a very good start to machine learning. Love it. It teaches to set-up environment and work with a sample dataset

A great experienced author about ML.

Generally, I am very satisfied with this book. Beforehand I have been speechless with the math and this helped draw me back out a few steps to better understand the concepts.

Excellent getting started book.

I enjoyed the listen-ability of this book. The emphasis is on how to use and understand Machine Learning rather than the math behind the algorithms. Was an enjoyable read.

its a decent ML boook.

The author seems a senior developer who has good information about Machine Learning concepts in the past despite a strong math background as well. I was optimistic that a book for total laities would help, but as someone who learns mainly by doing, the tips are easy to follow.

Its good book, good informative stuff.

I found it just wasn't hands-on enough. The information was good, but the lack of worked examples or exercises left me feeling like I hadn't learned all that much. I'd say if you're someone who can read information and absorb it, this could be a great introduction to the subject. But if you're like me and need a sandbox, you might want to keep looking.

The book is also quite practical.

This book is ideal for people first coming into Machine Learning looking for a clear high-level introduction. Having said that, the book is also quite practical too, and I had good fun going through the example exercises to build regression lines and scrub data-sets.
