Wow… good stuff. Mastering Python for Finance really delivers. It does a fine job blending academic theory with a practitioner’s penchant for useful applications, delivering Python code all the way to guide the reader along his / her journey. I have not worked all of the examples yet, but I am looking forward to doing so – especially the sections that use Hadoop & Python together.
The book introduces many new concepts, however after trying to make my way through the book, the code need an update, Starting at chapter 3 you will encounter numerous mistakes and omissions that cause the code to fail. Chapter 6 is rife with mistakes. Buy only if you have time to debug the code.
