This book doesn’t do everything for you. It gets you started on topics covered in each chapter then gives you opened ended problems to solve. It took me awhile to work thru the book. The time for action exercises are worth the effort to puzzle thru and play with. The start of the book is good for beginners. The rest of the book has more advanced topics, like CART and ridge regression.
