Book Review: Linear Algebra and Learning from Data by Gilbert Strang

I’ve been a big fan of MIT mathematics professor Dr. Gilbert Strang for many years. A few years ago I reviewed the latest 5th edition of his venerable text on linear algebra. Then last year I learned how he morphed his delightful mathematics book into a brand new title (2019) designed for data scientists – “Linear Algebra and Learning from Data.” I was intrigued, so after I received my review copy I did a deep dive without hesitation.
