Visualize The Best Python Books
Below is a visualization of best Python books according to average Amazon user rating and number of reviews. My methodology was to go through the list of the highest rated Python books and sort them, first by number of stars and then by number of reviewers. I removed potential books which had less than 7 reviews, books less than 100 pages, books older than 10 years, and books not directly on Python. At the end of the story I provide my analysis and the data in a Python dictionary. All the pictures are clickable links to the book on Amazon where you can verify the rating and purchase the book.
Lessons Learned from Visualizing The Best Python Books
The Cython book, Fluent Python, and Two Scoops of Django were all great books so I expected to see those towards the top. Tons of beginner books made the list as well. Surprisingly, the number one book was a niche Python book for biologists. And there was even a book called “Python For Kids For Dummies“.
The Data – Visualize Best Python Books
For a nicely formatted version of the data I created a link on my Github for the file. Feel free to use the data any way you want.
