Good book if you follow the coursera course., 29 Aug 2013
After watching the coursera course and using the discussion forums for questions I find this book useful to have. Without having any knowledge of Python or some knowledge of Linear Algebra I think it is very difficult to follow this course. I believe it will be very difficult to self-study linear algebra through this book without following the coursera course (and the discussion forums).
It is very nice that this books combines real computer science applications and demonstrate how linear algebra is used to solve them. This is the most nice part of this book.
