Reviewer Rating:
The book is well organized and the format is easily understandable. My big complaint may have more to do with Safari Books Online, than the printed copy. The Table of Contents is out of sync with the material. Trying to navigate by the TOC takes one to a different location in the text.
There are lots of helpful examples although they tend to lean heavily toward analyzing stock market data.
Overall a useful resource for those coming to numpy for the first time.
