Hi all!
I have less than 2 years experience with R, mostly focused on datascience and finance, now that I feel comfortable with the language, finally decided to start learning Python, and want to buy two books. One of them will be “Fluid Python: clear, concise and effective programming”,
For the other, I considered the list posted here.
Which one would you choose? If so, why?
I’ll apreciate any feedback, thanks!

  • Python Data Science Handbook: Essential Tools for Working with Data
  • Mastering Pandas for Finance
  • Python for Finance: Analyze Big Financial Data
