Clear and Concise

Very good overall structure to this book. My first 'academic' book in audio format. Clear explanations of topics and good general supportive dialogue. I found listening is an effective way to absorb information and can fit into my day when driving, walking etc. I learned a lot from this book but didn't grasp all concepts first time.....I would consider listening to it again as I grow my knowledge of certain ML topics alongside. Highly recommend.

Great content, lacked PDF & narrator not great

Fantastic book, concepts explained in depth and pitched at a technical level without diving deep into trivial maths, so in that sense I'd give a 10/10 for Chollet. However there was no PDF accompanying this audiobook, meaning references to figures was pointless. Also the narrator, while generally a good performance, did make an ordeal of some mathematical pronunciations, which could have been avoided... so a 5/10 for the rest.

Audible version is useless - has no PDF

I thought a PDF would be included, it isn’t. The narrator says constantly (with no other explanation of a concept) ‘as shown here’ brief pause, then continues. Impossible to follow only with audio.

Useless unless you also buy the physical book separately. I bet it would be an excellent book as a book.
