I'm Andriy Burkov, the author of the Amazon bestseller The Hundred-Page Machine Learning Book. AMA!
Hi! Three months ago, I posted online that most books on machine learning are too thick, which makes machine learning look very complex as engineering domain. I said that if I was to write a book on machine learning it would be a hundred-page book. That my post has become viral and I received two kinds of comments: 1) "It's impossible: those books are so thick for a reason!" and 2) "Please write that book!"
So I wrote that book, called it "The Hundred-Page Machine Learning Book", designed and published it entirely myself (with the help of volunteers for copy editing) using Kindle Direct Publishing, put it entirely online on the "read first, buy later" principle, and now it's a huge success on Amazon.
Will be glad to answer your questions!
OK, folks, the AMA is technically over. I will get back here from times to times during the day to see if there are some upvoted questions I didn't answer. Thank you, everyone, for your interest and great questions!
OMG thank you Reddit for the GOLD! My first gold ever!
