What are the best deep learning books to read?


I’m looking for foundational textbooks, manuals, or even long articles deep learning applications.

As a voracious reader, I enjoy reading both technical and non-technical books. My 2c on a few good books:

    • (1) Sebastian Raschka’s “Python Machine Learning (2nd ed) ” is an excellent, practical overview of traditional ML.
    • (2) Aurelion Geron’s “Hands on Machine Learning with Scikit-Learn and TensorFlow” is a superb guide on ML and DL with TensorFlow. I would recommend it to a practitioner
    • (3) The book “Prediction Machines - the Simple Economics of AI” (by Ajay Agrawal et al) is a great big picture book on the practical applications and implications of large scale AI


the most books I prefer to read in depth are:

  1. Machine Learning Yearing by Andrew Ng
  2. Deep Learning Book by Ian Goodfellow, Yoshua Bengio, Aaron Courville
  3. Neural Networks and Deep Learning by Michael Nielsen
