Discussion on: 3 Machine Learning Books that Helped me Level Up as a Data Scientist

I had read O’Reilly: Data Science from Scratch with Python but it does not satisfy my need to find out what is regression, softmax, dense, one hot, or any other methodologies. Do you have any book reference for that?

Thanks for asking!
It's true, Data Science from Scratch is a lot broader, and doesn't specialize in Machine Learning concepts -like the ones you bring up- only.

Most of the things you mentioned are usually associated with Deep Learning, and you'd get a very in-depth explanation of all of them, plus an intuition of when to use them, from Goodfellow's Deep Learning book.
