Not knowing anything about the book it's rather hard for me to interpret it's title in relation to the book's purpose. In other words what would be the reasons to for a person to invest time in the book?
The book's title certainly seems intriguing, math's being the most useful of the artificial tools at our disposal. The reason for my question is to verify the book's usefulness right at the source with the best of intentions.
Hello, you're asking about Math for Programmers, yes? Your title seems to indicate so, but the link in your post points to another book it seems.
Anyway, Math for Programmers is a book for programmers who are looking to engage or re-engage with mathematical ideas in calculus and linear algebra. It is not a traditional book on math because it covers a bunch of loosely related topics, and doesn't use proofs or derivations; instead it uses computer code. If you are looking to strengthen your math skills before diving into some quantitative programming discipline like machine learning, it could be a great book for you.
