A gem of a book :)

nobulI’ve just bought this delightfully titled book: No bullshit guide to linear algebra by Ivan Savov.

It’s not necessarily easy learning everything you need to know about linear algebra for machine learning in 5 weeks (is that just me???) – so when I hit a bit of a brick wall in week 4 I went looking for complementary sources of information to help me “get it”. On the strength of this one commentIvan’s books are always in my reference library. He is the Silvanus P Thompson of our modern day” I bought the book and I must say I can only agree that Ivan is indeed a modern day Silvanus!

It was tempting to skip straight to the parts that I’ve been struggling with, but in retrospect I’m consolidating and working from the beginning – and I feel like a slightly less shaky foundation is being built!
