Pandas 1.x Cookbook, 2nd Ed (Packt)
Monday, 16 March 2020

Subtitled" Practical recipes for scientific computing, time series analysis, and exploratory data analysis using Python", this new updated and revised edition covering Pandas 1.x provides recipes for both fundamental and advanced data manipulation tasks with pandas. Authors Matt Harrison and Theodore Petrou have included some recipes aimed at achieving a deeper understanding of basic principles, or comparing and contrasting two similar operations. Other recipes dive deep into a particular dataset, and many advanced recipes combine several different features across the pandas library to generate results.
