This summer, I finished reading the book Hands-On Machine Learning with Scikit-Learn, Keras, and TensorFlow (2nd ed.) by Aurélien Géron. I had no previous experience with Machine learning, but I feel confident about using it after reading this book. It includes both overview/intuition and in-depth explanations about Machine Learning algorithms and how to use them. The book covers everything from simple regression, to support vector machines (SVMs), to deep neural networks. But maybe most importantly, the book has excellent examples and exercises that helped me get started with Machine Learning.
Excellent examples and exercises!
