Practical Statistics for Data Scientists: 50 Essential Concepts

Statistical methods are a key part of of data science, yet very few data scientists have any formal statistics training. Courses and books on basic statistics rarely cover the topic from a data science perspective. This practical guide explains how to apply various statistical methods to data science, tells you how to avoid their misuse, and gives you advice on what’s important and what’s not.
Many data science resources incorporate statistical methods but lack a deeper statistical perspective. If you’re familiar with the R programming language, and have some exposure to statistics, this quick reference bridges the gap in an accessible, readable format.
With this book, you’ll learn:
Why exploratory data analysis is a key preliminary step in data science
How random sampling can reduce bias and yield a higher quality dataset, even with big data
How the principles of experimental design yield definitive answers to questions
How to use regression to estimate outcomes and detect anomalies
Key classification techniques for predicting which categories a record belongs to
Statistical machine learning methods that “learn” from data
Unsupervised learning methods for extracting meaning from unlabeled data

The Flavour Thesaurus: Pairings, Recipes and Ideas for the Creative Cook

Unique, beautifully written and ceaselessly imaginative, “The Flavor Thesaurus” is a completely new kind of food book–inspired, as author Niki Segnit explains, by her over-reliance on recipes. “Following the instructions in a recipe is like parroting pre-formed sentences from a phrasebook. Forming an understanding of how flavors work together, on the other hand, is like learning the language: it allows you to express yourself freely, to improvise, to cook a dish the way you want to cook it.”
“The Flavor Thesaurus “is the inquisitive cook’s guide to acquiring that understanding–to learning the language of flavor.
Breaking the vast universe of ingredients down to 99 essential flavors, Segnit suggests classic and less well-known pairings for each, grouping almost 1,000 entries into flavor families like “Green & Grassy,” “Berry & Bush” and “Creamy Fruity.” But “The Flavor Thesaurus” is much more than just a reference book, seasoning the mix of culinary science, culture and expert knowledge with the author’s own insights and opinions, all presented in her witty, engaging and highly readable style. As appealing to the novice cook as to the experienced professional, “The Flavor Thesaurus “will not only immeasurably improve your cooking–it’s the sort of book that might keep you up at night reading.””
Cooking is an art, like writing or painting, and great cooks are artists. And although the ultimate source of creativity remains elusive, all painters have their color wheel, all writers their vocabulary. And now, in the form of this beautiful, entertaining and exhaustively researched book, cooks have their own collection of essential knowledge: “The Flavor Thesaurus.”
