A different way to learn
This book aims to teach you something new, one question at a time.
There are 20,000 + 1 machine learning and data science books out there. That's great, but we wanted something different.
In April, we started publishing one machine learning question every day. A quick story with a problem and a few possible answers. Something quick, practical, and fun that you could solve in a few seconds. In just 30 days the site attracted more than 80,000 visitors and every day over 1,500 people answer the question and it keeps growing.
Many reached out asking for previous questions.
This book is a compendium of the 30 questions we published online from April 1 to April 30, 2022.

The book is structured in two main sections: questions come first, followed by the answers and explanations.
Every question tells you a quick story and gives you four possible answers. We try to dive as deep as possible with the explanations, to give you as many details as you need to understand the correct answer.
