Python Machine Learning – a really practical machine learning book

I am currently reading Python Machine Learning as I wanted to know more about scikit-learn, amongst other things. It’s a very practical guide with just enough theory to make sense of it all. A lot of machine learning books dive pretty deep into the theory, which is great if that’s what you want. On the other hand, if the idea is to get doing something fast, this book seems like a great place to start. It’s always easier to delve into theory when its relevance is clear and there’s nothing like actually writing and running code to get a feel for relevance.
