2.0 out of 5 stars Very Short, 14 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: SciPy and NumPy (Paperback)
This book would make a good chapter in another book, but weighing in at 57 pages (including the O'Reilly intro explanation and about) you don't get a lot for your money.

What you do get would make a great tutorial for a non-computational undergraduate, but this is a far cry from being a reference text - or something I would want to keep on a book shelf.

The book also includes black and white images, from which the author continuously points out 'the orange circles' or 'different colored dots'. The reader is left with only a very vague idea of what some of the diagrams intend to convey.
