To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Covers pretty much everything one can require in a book to get more than an intuition for deep learning. From the math, machine learning to the modern practices in deep learning and the ongoing research in a pretty formal manner. The hardbound cover and the print quality is very nice too. 10/10 would recommend.
Great book. One star less because for a book this price, the pages are inconsistently and badly printed - some pages are faded, some pages are blurred. Because the content is excellent, I am not subtracting any more stars.
I went with the seller for whom prime was available. Though it was 300 rs more than the cheapest one, the book looks original. There are colored images which look nice. Binding looks a bit weak as can be seen from the image. Page quality is ok.
I checked the page numbers to see if any were duplicated or shuffled. Thankfully, there were none. Also, I found that all the pictures are color; something to look out for when you're checking this book as many previous customers (not for this seller in particular) had complained that the pages were missing or entirely replaced with a duplicate of other pages. Page quality is good; don't expect laminated-paper quality. It is firm and thick and not flimsy by any means.
I, however, found that the binding the book is weak; just holding it in your hands causes the hardcovers to twist the binding. Hopefully it's a feature to prevent the binding from breaking if it was too stiff but I guess that's a story that only time will tell.
Seller was 'CloudTail'. Their offering was ~Rs 300 more than the cheapest offer from another seller but I have brought most of my electronic gadgets from these guys and they have never disappointed. And in light of all the feedback regarding dubious clones being sold under the guise of the original book, I felt it best to go with a seller with whom I have a great experience with. So, no problems there.
