"Think X" Book Series and the Textbook Manifesto


Recently came across and have started reading "Think Stats: Probability and Statistics for Programmers" by Allen B. Downey.

There are some other "Think X" books that look interesting too, where X might be "Python", "Bayes", "Complexity" or something else.

Oh, and:

...books are available under free license that allow readers to copy and distribute the text; they are also free to modify it, which allows them to adapt the book to different needs, and to help develop new material.

These books are available in a variety of electronic formats; some are also for sale in hard copy.

Found the Textbook Manifesto by the same author:

Students should read and understand textbooks.

Sounded pretty reasonable.

This looks interesting. Thanks for the heads up! :Thmbsup:
