Engineering Mathematics by K.A. Stroud and Dexter Booth Changed my life, it taught me Engineering Mathematics in a way may other books failed to, and made me love maths even more.
I am hoping to write a book just like that on Machine Learning. It will focus on interesting ways to apply Machine Learning, and will have A LOT of examples and case studies. The goal is to create a good textbook for students entering into the field as well as a good reference text for practitioners. It will cover the Primary Industry: Agriculture, farming, forestry, fishing, horticulture, etc., Genetic Industry: Plant nurseries, cattle rearing, poultry, cattle breeding, etc., Extractive Industry: Mining industry, coal mineral, oil industry, iron ore, extraction of timber and rubber from forests, etc., Manufacturing Industry: Textiles, chemicals, sugar industry, paper industry, etc., Construction Industry: Construction of buildings, bridges, roads, dams, canals, etc., and the Service Industry; Hotel industry, tourism , entertainment etc. As well as several case studies in Supply Chain, Brand-building, Finance, Human Resources and Sales.
It should be out by the end of the year.
