Lovely settlers of Mastodon; what is the best book about Statistics (as theoretical background behind ML/Data Science) that you can recommend? Extra points if it is completely [programming] language-agnostic! #machinelearning #math #statistics #datascience

@diegovicente not language agnostic, but I'm working my way through this:

So far the programming is largely confined to the exercises - the text is more about how the science works. Is good!

@gwmngilfen it was the one I had in mind, been reading good things about that book for a while and that is a great confirmation. Thank you!
