Part first-time homeowners' guide (how to replace a fuse), part cooking instruction manual (how to wash lettuce and keep it crisp), part stockpile of advice from Mom and Dad (removing stains, changing your oil), this encyclopedia of life skills comes packaged as a fully illustrated, easy-to-follow book. It's a survival guide of sorts, full of 138 step-by-step projects—how to tie a tie, boil water, iron a shirt, build a doghouse, rewire a lamp, make a dingy T-shirt white again, prime a surface for painting, jump a battery—to teach readers practical skills of woodworking, cooking, sewing, plumbing, electricity, cleaning, and more. Full of sidebars, lists, and bonus how-tos, like the top ten items that should be in every wardrobe (for men and women), how to wash lettuce, and how to shorten (and lengthen) a hem. A complete book for those who are just starting out in life—without home ec and shop class on their résumé—as well as those whose skills might have grown a little rusty over time.

Data science libraries, frameworks, modules, and toolkits are great for doing data science, but they’re also a good way to dive into the discipline without actually understanding data science. In this book, you’ll learn how many of the most fundamental data science tools and algorithms work by implementing them from scratch. If you have an aptitude for mathematics and some programming skills, author Joel Grus will help you get comfortable with the math and statistics at the core of data science, and with hacking skills you need to get started as a data scientist. Today’s messy glut of data holds answers to questions no one’s even thought to ask. This book provides you with the know-how to dig those answers out. Get a crash course in Python Learn the basics of linear algebra, statistics, and probability—and understand how and when they're used in data science Collect, explore, clean, munge, and manipulate data Dive into the fundamentals of machine learning Implement models such as k-nearest Neighbors, Naive Bayes, linear and logistic regression, decision trees, neural networks, and clustering Explore recommender systems, natural language processing, network analysis, MapReduce, and databases
