Summary

This audiobook is a perfect beginner's guide to natural language processing. It is offering an easy-to-understand guide to implementing NLP techniques using Python. Natural language processing has been around for more than 50 years, but just recently, with greater amounts of data present and better computational powers, it has gained a greater popularity.

Given the importance of data, there is no wonder why natural language processing is on the rise. If you are interested in learning more, this audiobook will serve as your best companion on this journey introducing you to this challenging yet extremely engaging world of automatic manipulation of our human language.

It covers all the basics you need to know before you dive deeper into NLP and solving more complex NLP tasks in Python.

Here is a preview of what you'll learn here....

  • The main challenges of natural language processing
  • The history of natural language processing
  • How natural langauge processing actually works
  • The main natural language processing applications
  • Text preprocessing and noise removal 
  • Feature engineering and syntactic parsing
  • Part of speech tagging and named entity extraction
  • Topic modeling and word embedding 
  • Text classification problems 
  • Working with text data using NLTK 
  • Text summarization and sentiment analysis 
  • And much, much more....

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Not great in audio format

I tried this book in audio format, the book includes many code samples. The content was good and very useful.

The code samples, however, are not narrated well, each character is read out in a computer like tone. The narrating of the code samples isn't helpful and the duration of the code samples, going character by character, caused me to loose track afterwards.

fantastic guide


If you have any need for Natural Language Processing - this book is the one you must listen. I've bought & listen the famous audiobooks on the subject, but these give you just the theory & math

most interesting

This is one of the most interesting programming books I have ever listen
, and it's so easy to jump right in and play with the NLTK. I have devoured this book

Amazing book

Just loved this book. It makes very few assumptions about the reader in terms of background and quick start guide if you have basics of programming clear. Loved the way the content is structured and the effort to explain things in simple terms. Most examples are so relatable that its make the understanding of concepts very clear. Would have loved if a chapter int he beginning was dedicated to some important terms in natural language processing making it even more simple to a newbie to connect faster.

I used this book throughout a Natural Language Processing course and it helped immensely. I particularly liked having the hard copy instead of the digital version especially while working on lengthy projects and trying to understand several topics.

This should not be an audiobook.

It seemed me like it was also a first reading by the performer... maybe grab the book version.

clear problems

The math behind the algorithms are well explained, and allows you to generalize the ideas presented to new problems.

practical book

An ideal book for both beginners and experienced online business players. Because here it is well described the importance of each step, as well as what will be if treated lightly.

great process


This book was used in a course on natural language processing in computer science. We only cover a sliver of the content presented in this book. This book has tons of information and with much detailed information
