"A great book on statistical analysis with Python utilizing big-data. I was skeptical about this title at first (I'm not much of a mathematician at all) I was overall pleased with the experience and flow of this book. Mostly focusing on Pandas, this book also cameos IPython and Num-Py. Recommended for anyone who's doing some serious number crunching or analysis with large datasets. " Full Review >

"Wes McKinney's Python for Data Analysis (O'Reilly, 2012) is a tour pandas and NumPy (mostly pandas) for folks looking to crunch big-ish¯ data with Python.
