    This ebook is top notch. Everything is very well written and explained. The exercises really made me think which I loved. There doesn’t exist solutions to the exercises, which at first I thought is extremely annoying, but I ended up not minding.

    The course does get math heavy at times, I’d say an understanding of multivariable calc is preferred.

    brilliant book with interactive examples

    This was way too elementary and verbose for my taste.

    The “Deep Learning” book by Goodfellow, Bengio and Courville that someone else recommended is at the same level of Bishop’s and Murphy’s and it’s well written

    I have also read the complete book and can recommend it! However, I personally had troubles understanding some of his explanations like the ones in Chapter 2 where he explains Backpropagation. Here, I didn’t really understand how the algortihm works in detail from a mathematical/fundamental point of view. To do so I had to consider many more resources and videos. The only way to solve my understanding problem was to completely derive everything from scratch and to spend a lot of time on it. In case you have similar issues or questions about the Backpropagation algortihm just drop me a message I would be glad to help out.

    Yeah it’s absolutely stonking

    Read some of it a while ago. The style is very approachable. He also includes interactive plots which are really nice for developing intuitions.
